Blues Commission President
Ms. Owens

The Mississippi Gulf Coast Blues Commission (MGCBC) was founded in March 1991 with a mission:

1.To hold an annual blues festival in September with part of the proceeds distributed amongst youth organizations in the coastal counties of Mississippi, and

2.To promote the blues as an art form that originated in Mississippi and her southern sister states.

Today, the Mississippi Gulf Coast Blues Commission (hereafter referred to as the “Commission”) is a 501 © (3) nonprofit organization with a distinguished membership consisting of sustaining and associate members. The Commission is headed by an equally distinguished executive committee.
