The Washington Blues Society is taking applications for artists to represent the state in the 2018 International Blues Challenge. There will be five semifinals around the state in June, followed by the finals on August 20th in Snohomish. One band and one solo/duo act will be sent to Memphis next January. The Blues Society will help with expenses on the trip. WBS has sent past winners, and this is a chance for someone to show their talent to a world audience. If you or someone you know would be interested, forward this application now.
