2020 Journey to Memphis Cancelled

2023 Journey to Memphis Finalists

2020 Journey to Memphis Postponed

This is a message that we were truly hoping that we wouldn’t have to announce, but for the first time in over twenty years, the Cascade Blues Association will be cancelling our Journey to Memphis competition for 2020. As the summer rolls forward and Covid-19 shows no signs of letting up to allow us to utilize a venue to full capacity that we’d need to present a proper event, we feel that preparation time for both the participating acts and the Cascade Blues Association, along with our prime opportunity to raise funds to assist with our winners to travel to Memphis is quickly eluding us.  

The Blues Foundation have cancelled the 2021 International Blues Challenge. We look forward to being able to resume the Journey to Memphis next year in hopes of sending representatives to the International Blues Challenge in 2022.
