Welcome to the Piedmont Blues Preservation Society

From our love of music and our belief that music is best shared in a community, came the founding of the Piedmont Blues Preservation Society in 1985. Our non-profit organization works to cultivate and preserve the tradition of blues music. Our mission is to help the youth of our community discover the wonder and joy of music by raising awareness and providing music education to our community and schools. We strive to bring quality blues events, including our Annual Carolina Blues Festival, concerts, competitions, workshops, and educational programs to the Triad. We collaborate with other non-profits in support of health-related issues, educational initiatives, and societal concerns. Our focus is to promote local businesses, the arts, education, tourism and to make Guilford County a great place to live.
