The International Blues Challenge in Memphis is coming up! February 1st through the 5th are the dates, with the semi-finals and the finals being held at the tail end of the week. There is always a startling amount of talent and an overflowing of support from blues fans across the world (last year we met friends who flew in from France to attend the event!). We’ll be joining the festivities, eating some slow smoked Memphis dry-rubbed ribs, and rooting for some of our favorite blues acts!
Since nearly every hotel in the county is booked for the event, we may well be sleeping in the car, but we’ll be sure to get lots of pictures to share with all of our blues friends who couldn’t make it this year! We’ll try to schedule some cool interviews and content while we’re gone, but don’t be surprised if the blues news seems a little slow this next week!
