So who’s CD (Chris) Woodbury, guitarist, vocalist, songwriter and this state’s rep at the next International Blues Challenge? He’s been playing the Northwest blues beat with his band (Don Montana on drums, Patrick McDaniel on bass) for several years, winning awards and pleasing audiences with a wide range of influences, but mostly the blues. He’s had some notoriety outside PNW: His self-produced album Monday Night was selected for IBC in 2013, finishing in the top five in the competition. He was a semi-finalist in the 2015 band competition. Originally from Keizer, OR, he’s a Northwest native through and through. Let’s give this homeboy a rousing sendoff to Memphis in January.
