THE BLUESNEWS FROM THE WORLD OF THE BLUESBLUES
FOR THE WEEKEND OF (FEBRUARY 9-10, 2019

It was a wrap last weekend at the international Blues Challenge. Days and Days and hours and hours of non stop blues throughout the City of Memphis Tennessee until finally, one act emerged as the winners of the 2019 International Blues Challenge.  That act was Ms Hy-C and Fresh Start, sponsored by the St Louis Blues Society.  Second Place went to Sammy Eubanks and the Workin Class, sponsored by the Washington Blues Society.  The Gibson Guitar Award went to Gabe Stillman sponsored by the Billtown Blues Association….Solo act winner went to Jon Shain, sponsored by the Triangle Blues Society and the winner of the Best Self Produced CD, or as I call it BCD….Blues Compact Disc, went to The Little Red Rooster Blues Band, sponsored by the Central Delaware Blues Society.  The name of the BCD is Lock Up The Liquor.  Another great event by The Blues Foundation and if you want to see more and see some video highlight of the 34th International Blues Challenge, we have a link to all of that on our BluesNews page at BluesTimeinthecity.com…..

The Mardi Gras season is here….Parades have already begun in New Orleans, and Fat Tuesday Falls on Tuesday, March 5th.  Blues, Jazz, Soul and Zydeco music fill the air and great times are had by all.  Love Mardi Gras.  You would have thought that that Mardi Gras was last weekend as thousands marched through the streets of New Orleans declaring there was no Super Bowl….With full disclosure here, I’m an Atlanta Falcons Fan through and through,  and it would have really tough to see the Saints up in our Dome playing in a Super Bowl….But, it didn’t happen, and to be honest, Yall were robbed…. But it didn’t bother us…..If you want to see the full schedule of Mardi Gras 2019, we have a link on the BlueNews page at Bluestimeinthecity.com…. No football Love lost here….Even if Thursday is Valentines…..
