The annual 2017 International Blues Challenge
The annual 2017 International Blues Challenge #33 has started today. Last year I was one of the competitors (2016). It was one of the most important highlights in my entire career as a musician. I was so happy to have made it to the semi finals. The experience was one to never forget. Too bad I can’t be there this year to attend the festival but I know one thing for sure: The Blues Foundation, Memphis, USA has done another great job organizing this massive event.
This year I am proud to see two of my favorite bands and musicians from my country participate; The Detonics (band) and Robert Fossen & Dave Warmerdam (duo) from the Netherlands. I want to wish them the best of luck, but even more, a great time in Memphis, just like I had when I was there during the event.
And this picture; the one on this years’ website of the IBC just couldn’t say more…
Or this one…

I was stunned to see these pictures on their website so prominently. It is truly one of the world’s biggest blues events!
I wish you all so much fun at #IBC2017 and good luck to all competitors. Keep on keeping on!
With love, Bo and Vera
