The Blues Hall of Fame Museum is located in Memphis, Tennessee and is curated and managed by The Blues Foundation. Started in 1980 The Blues Hall of Fame recognizes performers and individuals whose lifetime of work has had a major impact upon the blues genre, as well as the music and literature that is most iconic to this musical art form. New honorees in categories of Performers, Individuals, Single Recordings, Album Recordings, and Literature are inducted each May in a ceremony held in Memphis, TN and their biographies, music and videos, and memorabilia are added to the museum to keep the content fresh. As such, the Blues Hall of Fame database is constantly growing with new annual inductees.
