About the Blues Blast Music Awards

Fiona Boyes is nominated for the 2019 Blues Blast Music Awards for 'Best Female Blues Artist' 

VOTING Closed on AUGUST 16, 2019 - Winners will be announced at Gala Event on FRIDAY 13 SEPT!

In 2008, a group of Blues music industry professional including music critics, festival promoters, music venues managers, producers, musicians and other Blues music industry folks got together to create a new independent way to recognise the best in Blues music. The result was the first Blues Blast Music Awards.


The nomination process results in two forms of recognition for the artists.  First the nominators select their ‘best of’ choices so ALL of the nominees are winners because they have in effect won the ‘critic’s award’ by being nominated.

Then fans vote for their choices.  The results are the largest awards series where Blues fans vote for the Best in contemporary Blues music giving the artists with the most votes a ‘people’s choice’ award!


The Blues Blast Music Awards are presented by Blues Blast Magazine - the largest FREE weekly internet Blues magazine with over 33,000 opt-in Blues fans located in all 50 states of America and in more than 90 countries world-wide.  Voting and subscriptions are FREE - VOTE now!   Winners to be announced at a Gala event on Friday 13 Sept, 2019 at the Tebala Event Center, Rockford, IL
