During the Blues Music Award week in Memphis this of May, blues artists and industry from all over the world gather to celebrate. One of the events that is being organized this year is a “meet and greet’ for women in blues whether they are artists or women behind the scenes making things happen.

The event will take place on Saturday May 9th at 1pm til 3pm at the FuBAR lounge, upstairs of the Rum Boogie Cafe on Beale Street in downtown Memphis. 1pm will be socializing followed by presentations and a question and answer session at 2pm. So far, confirmed presenters at the event are:

Lisa J. Grissom, who produces the Tall City Blues Fest in Midland Texas and is also the editor for the West Texas Blues Magazine. From her perspective as a festival buyer she will be sharing her top three ways to get a festival gig, valuable information for artists trying to get into the festival circuit.

This event is an informal gathering, for artists to meet and learn from each other and the women behind the scenes who make things happen. We hope if you are an artist or a women that works in the industry as a festival buyer, djs, record label, publicist, or promoter we hope you can attend. This is a free event and not a musical event but a networking session to meet and learn.
