(Jackson, MS) --- The Central Mississippi Blues Society of Jackson has been awarded a $4,750 grant from the Mississippi Arts Commission (MAC). MAC is a state agency funded by the Mississippi Legislature, the National Endowment for the Arts, and local foundations. This grant is a portion of the $1.5 million in grants the Commission has awarded in 2009-2010 and will be used to promote the local culture of Blues Music as an art form through live performances.
The grants are made possible by continued funding from the Mississippi State Legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts.

“Organizations across the state who receive grants from the Mississippi Arts Commission continue to prove that arts programs are vital to the growth of their area. The grants awarded by the Commission provide funding for the staging of festivals, theatre performances and many other arts-related activities,” said Malcolm White, Executive Director of MAC.

The Central Mississippi Blues Society, a 501c3 organization established in 2005, sponsors the weekly blues show and jam Blue Monday, at Hal and Mal’s in Jackson. It is through the Blue Monday events that key goals of the CMBS are achieved, such as promoting the local culture of blues music through live performances and showcasing local blues artists as well as regional and international talent.
