The International Blues Challenge represents the worldwide search for Blues Bands and Solo/Duo Blues Acts ready to perform on the international stage, yet just needing that extra big break. Affiliated organizations across the country are staging regional competitions, with the winner of each heading to the International competition held annually in Memphis, TN along historic Beale Street.
Our region's affiliate, the Capital Region Blues Network, has selected four area finalists to compete on the Caffe Lena stage this afternoon. The winner, selected by the audience, will win a prize package worth more than $1,000 and the right to represent the Capital District this winter in Memphis!
This year's contestants in the Solo/Duo category are Agape Blues Company, The Hotshot Hillbillies, Mary Ann Casale, and Wyld Blue. They're playing for keeps, cash, and professional guitar setups from Kokotele Guitar Works.
The winner will be chosen by combining the judges scores with audience vote, so c'mon down, listen hard, and cast your ballot for your favorite act!
