Blues Education for All

One thing that appears to motivate Tas Cru is his sincere interest in passing along the blues to others. Fourth graders and veterans have seen him play, and his  educational site promotes input for all blues educators to share. The Capital Region Blues Network supports his efforts through grant proposals and from schools to a library the message of blues history, the fun of learning about these basics in music education add so much to so many.

His enthusiasm is infectious. He is donating his first night’s jam at the International Blues Challenge at his yearly Rum Boogie Café event in Memphis to Generation Blues and shares his information on his Facebook Page, “Tas Cru Blues Educators Network”. He has been instrumental in getting this Tuesday evening successful as it opens the stage to artists and the music goes on for hours on Beale Street..On his trip down south to the IBC he will be visiting schools and sites promoting efforts for future blues enthusiasts.

“I think it is important to support the youth, and I like being part of a group which shares these great blues artists with them. It is such an American treasure, ” added Cru. “The network can be a resource in helping all the educators out there to work together and share ideas.”
