Just in case we have any new readers unsure as to the purpose of this event, it is the competition that is used to select the band and solo/duo acts we will send to Memphis for the International Blues Challenge. Bands and solo/duo acts who desire to compete in Memphis must win in a local competition sponsored by a blues society that is an affiliate of the Blues Foundation. Each affiliated society is allowed to send one band, one solo or duo, and one youth act.
