MVBS Fundraiser Feb 9 with Billy Branch
DAVENPORT, IA) – Chicago-blues singer and harmonica maestro Billy Branch will perform at Davenport’s Village Theatre (2113 East 11th St., Davenport, Iowa) on February 9 in a fundraising concert for the Mississippi Valley Blues Society (MVBS). 

Branch is a three-time Grammy Award nominee, Emmy Award winner, and the recipient of multiple Blues Music Awards and Living Blues Critics’ Awards, a retired Grammy governor, and recipient of two BMA Keeping the Blues Alive Awards for his Blues in Schools programs. In addition, he is on the Board of Directors of both the Blues Foundation and the Little Walter Foundation. Branch is most proud of being a 2020 inductee into the International Blues Foundation’s Blues Hall of Fame Museum in Memphis.

Billy Branch has been called the Ambassador of the Chicago Blues because he has spent nearly fifty years representing the Blues legacy around the world. He is one of the last living bluesmen to have been mentored by the original blues giants. The critically lauded musician is also serving as the resident artist for the first 2022 MVBS Blues in the Schools program.
Admission to this all-ages 8-9:30pm fundraising event is $8–$15. More information and tickets are available at the Mississippi Valley Blues Society website.
