International Blues Challenge Competition – Cancelled

Sacramento Blues Society’s

2018 International Blues Challenge

Solo/Duo Competition


The Sacramento Blues Society’s Board of Directors has regretfully made a tough decision to cancel this year’s International Blues Challenge competition. The competition, which selects a band or solo/duo artist (we typically alternate year to year) to represent the SBS at the Blues Foundation’s annual event in Memphis, is a long-standing tradition for the SBS. However, this year, due to a number of factors including our budget crisis and lack of participation, the Board has cancelled the event.

Hopefully, next year we’ll have both the funds and the willing contestants to have an exciting competition that will result in the SBS sending a winning artist to the IBC.
