It's amazing when a world-renown, Juno-nominated artist takes the time and energy to give back to his community. Especially so when he does it for youngsters who hope to follow in his footsteps.

For the third year in a row, JW Jones is holding his #613FUTUREBLUES music jam for young musicians. And he's putting out the call for young talent.

Jones is looking for Blues musicians between the ages of 12 and 18, who have knowledge of this music genre and are able to perform in front of an audience. He has opened up a virtual audition, where those who are interested must send a video or download link, such as, in a private message to his Facebook page.

The performance will be held on Sunday, April 14, at 2:00 pm, at Lone Star Texas Grill—1211 Lemieux Street, near St.Laurent Blvd. and the Queensway (across from the St.Laurent Shopping Centre).

If you know a young musician who would be interested, please spread the word. Share this post with music teachers, musicians (or their parents).

The future of Blues is in our youth: let's give them a helping hand.
