Welcome to the Blues Society of Central PA (BSCP) website!

    The BSCP is a non-profit corporation dedicated to the preservation, promotion, support and enjoyment of the truly original American art form, the blues.

    Our goal is to be a complete local resource for all blues lovers, or anyone seeking to broaden their musical experience. During the course of the year, we host or sponsor many blues events and festivals, some free to the public, featuring local, regional and nationally known acts, and via our free weekly electric blues jams each Thursday night we’re promoting local talent. We invite all local blues men and women, no matter where they are on their blues playing journey, to get up on stage and perform and grow in front of appreciative audiences.

    All of our events are open to the public, but being a BSCP member has its privileges and helps in the effort to host and sponsor great blues events. You can become a member for $15 a year, which gets you into both the annual Mississippi Railroad event in July and the annual all-you-can-eat Christmas party in December.

    On this website you’ll learn about events and personalities that drive the blues genre in and around Central PA. We hope you enjoy it and join in on the fun.
