UKBlues News: Four finalists chosen to take part in the UK Blues Challenge

Posted on: Friday, Sep 4, 2015


A selection panel created by UKBlues formed of nearly 200 musicians, writers, promoters, venues, festivals, radio presenters, PR/promotions, agents, record labels, and fans, including all UK Active Members of the European Blues Union (EBU) and representatives of the UK’s previous European Blues Challenge (EBC) contestants has chosen four acts to compete in the latest UK Blues Challenge.

The top four acts available to compete have been invited to take part in the UK Blues Challenge, which is being jointly promoted by EBU active member Pete Feenstra and UKBlues and which will take place on Saturday, 24thOctober, 2015 at the Boom Boom Club in Sutton in front of a panel of judges drawn from within the blues community, but whose identities, for obvious reasons, will remain confidential until after the challenge.

The acts are:

Brothers Groove

The Katie Bradley Band

Malaya Blue

Red Butler

UK Blues congratulates the acts on their selection to take part in the UK Blues Challenge.

The panel of judges will be selected by UKBlues and Pete Feenstra, the co-promoter, and they will use the same criteria to award points to the contestants as is used at the EBC.

The winner of the UK Blues challenge will represent the UK at the 6th European Blues Challenge, organised by the EBU, and which will take place in Torrita di Siena, Italy on 7-8-9 April 2016.

Soon, we will be releasing details of how you can join UKBlues and support its work and help us move forward and achieve our aims.
