2021 Blues Blast Music Awards - Fiona receives 2 nominations



Nominations for the prestigious USA Blues Blast Music Awards are selected by a group of Blues music industry professionals including music critics, festival promoters, music venues managers, producers, musicians and other Blues music industry folks.

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.  Fans are then invited to vote for the final winners in each category.   Voting is now open at https://www.bluesblastmagazine.com
