THE BLUESNEWS FROM THE WORLD OF THE BLUESBLUES FOR THE WEEKEND OF JUNE 10-11, 2017 At the 38th Blues Music Awards on May 11th, there were a lot of huge winners….But none stand out more than Bobby Rush.  Bobby got the Album of the Year for Porcupine Meat, but his four disc retrospective Chicken Heads: A 50 History of Bobby Rush was named Historical Album of the Year.  For a dude to be 83, that is not to bad.  And this was his 12th BMA award.  He’s on a roll because he picked up his first Grammy earlier this year.  You go Bobby Rush….Other winners that I know are Joe Bonamassa, Kenny Neal, Mavis Staples, Bob Margolin, Lurrie Bell, and Cedric Burnside.  For the complete list, we have a link on the BluesNews Page at BluesTime In The City.com…This event is put on by the Blues Foundation.
