This website will continue to be a work in progress... (Updated Dec. 14)

The Blues for Christmas family — for we truly are a family — has lost musicians, performers and supporters over the years. Musicians who made incredible contributions to the world of music both locally and internationally; artists whose talents were exceeded only by their generosity; friends and supporters who were always there when needed.

We have done our best to ensure that we have acknowledged those who have, in the past, performed or been part of our Blues For Christmas shows and are no longer with us.

The following people will be in our hearts... always.
