Workshops & Exchanges

TRBX 5th AnniversaryRDU Blues puts on at least one workshop a year where the community can come together, learn dance skills, and have fun. Plus we hold a yearly “exchange” event – Tobacco Road Blues Exchange (TRBX) – that focuses on live music, social activities & a ton of dancing! As a community group, our number one goal is a good, fun, safe time for all. Second to that, we also like really good dancing. šŸ˜‰

Mark your calendars now for our next TRBX on January 26-28, 2018.

It’ll be our 5th anniversary, so we’re planning a ton of great stuff! Make sure to join the TRBX 5th Anniversary event and follow the Tobacco Road Blues Exchange page to get all the updates!
