The vision of the Fox Valley Music Foundation is to preserve, promote and protect music with ties to the Fox Valley and to educate.
Just as a small group of blues enthusiasts uncovered the history of the Leland Tower recordings that date back to the 1930’s which became the inspiration of Blues on the Fox, the Foundation has begun to embark on an archaeological and anthropological journey of sorts through the musty and filmy archives of Fox Valley history with the goal of uncovering and preserving more of that history that time might otherwise forget. As part of the mission, we will bring snippets of those discoveries to this blog.
Who knows what other things, like Blues on the Fox, will be inspired by those discoveries.
The Foundation is not just looking back in time; the Foundation is tied into the vibrant and growing music scene in the Fox Valley that is waiting to be promoted and discovered as living history. We will use the blog to sound out interesting bits about that local music scene. There are many talented artists in the area that many people have never heard of. We will shine the light on them and the musical undertones in the area.
Check back often and like the Foundation Facebook page to stay on top of the latest information, and share the wealth with your friends.
