VBS Blues Calendar –   October 28, 2018

BEST SELF PRODUCED BLUES CD
Victoria Blues Society had 2 CD’s submitted for the 2018 Best Self Produced CD competition. A panel of four independent judges reviewed the CD’s. The judges scoring mirrors the criteria used by the Blues Foundation. The scores have been tallied. Based on the highest total points awarded, the CD that won is Deb Rhymer’s – Don’t Wait Up. Deb’s CD will be submitted by the VBS to the Blues Foundation for consideration in their competition.We feel that Vancouver Island has many excellent musicians and the caliber of the CD’s submitted reflects this. Kudos and thank you to each participant.
