ARBA Patron Chris Finnen proclaimed the SA Blues Album of 2014-15 to have been adjudged as ‘Live At Mixmasters Vol. 1’. The special engraved glass trophy was accepted by Mark Everson on behalf of Zkye Blue, personnel of the 5-piece group then being unavailable but to whom the trophy was passed the next day, by BAA Coordinator Jeff Parham.
Tokens celebrating the contribution of the ten entered albums to blues music recorded in SA in the 21 months to 30th June 2015 were given to representatives of the related acts and as thank you’s to the panel of five judges.
As an Affiliate of the Memphis based Blues Foundation, ARBA will enter the winning album in the International Blues Challenge Self Produced-CD Contest before November ... the first-ever submission from this state!
Congratulations Zkye Blue, from all at ARBA.
