Winner Announced for CRBN’s Acoustic Blues Showdown
The Capital Region Blues Network hosted its annual Acoustic/Duo Blues Showdown at the Fuller Roadhouse Grille in Albany on Saturday night. Facing off in the competition were Morning Kill Creek Blues (featuring Zack Cohen and Michael Koshgarian); Leslie Barkman; Jimy Graham; and last year’s winner Holly & Evan.
It was a very close battle, but as chosen by the crowd in attendance, the winner was Jimy Graham, who will be headed to Memphis in January to represent the Capital Region Blues Network in the International Blues Competition.
Congrats to Jimy Graham, Joe Lowry & the Second Mile Blues Band, all of the other participating musicians and everyone who came out to support the Local 518 blues scene.
