Blues Blast Awards Honors Ben Rice

Congratulations to Ben Rice for being named the 2019 recipient of the Sean Costello Rising Star Award from the Blues Blast Awards. It is hard for us to believe that Ben is a “rising star” as he has been such a solid presence in our region for the better part of two decades. Along with his Blues Music Award nominations, this has been quite a ride for him this year gaining much-deserved international recognition. The Cascade Blues Association is proud of Ben’s accomplishments and we foresee it as only the beginning of many more honors to come.
