CONGRATS! Canadians Win at the International Blues Challenge!

A few local artists went to this year's International Blues Challenge in Memphis but though the the FOG Blues and Brass Band from Kitchener reached the semi-finals, none of them took home awards. Canada didn't come home empty handed though. Two Ottawa-based bands made their country proud. JW-Jones earned the Gibson Guitarist Award and Horojo Trio won 1st Place in the band contest.
