Chicago Blues Heritage Celebration

Chicago Blues Heritage Celebration


2020 has been designated “The Year of Chicago Music” (YOCM) by Mayor Lori Lightfoot and the  Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE). In honor of YOCM, The Alliance is partnering with several arts, music, social and civic organizations, as well as Chicago’s Chief Cultural Historian, Tim Samuelson, to create The Chicago Blues Heritage Trail.

The Chicago Blues Heritage Trail will include tours, concerts, exhibitions and the creation of an online self-guided tour; all celebrating Blues history where it was made – on the Southside of Chicago. Throughout the year, we will pay tribute to and take inspiration from the Blues at all Alliance events, from the Frunchroom to the Beverly Art Walk.

Due to COVID-related restrictions and cancellations, YOCM has been extended to 2021 with many events postponed to then.
