Muddy Awards

CBA Muddy Awards Moves to a New VenueNew Muddy Awards Procedure

The 2018 Cascade Blues Association Muddy Awards are just around the corner, taking place on Wednesday, November 14. We have a lot of ideas floating around for the event, but the biggest, newest thing is that this year’s ceremony and concert will take place at the Alberta Rose Theatre. Always one of the most exciting and anticipated nights in our local blues community of the year, we will be bringing you the excitement of those being honored and of course there will be plenty of live music, including our annual Muddy All Star Band, this year pieced together and hosted by Muddy Hall of Fame member Rae Gordon.
