Raising The Blues, Ltd. is a 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization dedicated to bringing music to children undergoing medical treatment or recovery, and children with physical, emotional or educational challenges. Primarily through the use of Blues music, we seek to raise the spirits, abilities and aspirations of children who can benefit from musical enrichment and interactive musical opportunities.


Our musicians and volunteers bring musical performances, interactive musical opportunities and musical training to children in hospital, rehabilitation facilities, schools and special education settings or other appropriate venues.
