THE INTERNATIONAL BLUES CHALLENGE 2024:
In August, John Colgan-Davis and I competed for and won an opportunity to compete in the International Blues Challenge, in Memphis. It happens this coming January.
Winning a chance to compete in the International Blues Challenge, hosted each year by the Memphis based Blues Foundation, is quite an honor!
"The International Blues Challenge represents the worldwide search for blues bands and solo/duo blues performers ready for the international stage, yet just needing that extra big break." The world’s largest competition of blues musicians will take place on Beale Street, with over 20 clubs hosting hundreds of challengers from all around the globe.
It runs from January 16 -20th 2024
