IBC Promotional Blurb From The President

Our attention is quickly turning towards the International Blues Challenge which will take place on Beale Street in Memphis, TN from Tuesday, January 31st though Saturday, February 4th, 2017. We are proud to send the Mark Cameron Band, Mike Munson/Mikkel Beckmen and Colin Campbell & The Shackletons as representatives of the Society.

Many have inquired about when IBC tickets will go on sale and when the hotel blocks will open for your reservations. On October 1st, the Blues Foundation will be sending an email to current Blues Foundation members to open ticket sales and to share links to all of the Downtown Memphis hotels with whom they have blocks of rooms with special rates for their members. If you are not a member of The Blues Foundation, make sure to JOIN NOW in order to be included in this communication. Rooms sell out quickly for the IBC, and members always get first access, so your membership is the best way to get this information ahead of the general public.

This year, they are increasing the daytime activities beyond just the showcases to include workshops, panels, and a new documentary film. In order to join any of these events at the 2017 IBC, you must have a pass for the entire week. Your pass will get you into everything IBC. Passes are only $100 for the entire week.

MORE NEWS!!! For the past several years a contingent of Minnesota blues fans have extended their IBC trip by one more day and traveled to the Mecca of the Blues, Clarksdale MS, a mere 75 miles down the road. This is "The Crossroads," the location where the legend says blues musician Robert Johnson sold his soul to the Devil for the ability to play a mean guitar. Located at the corner of Highway 61 ("The Blues Highway") and Highway 49 in Clarksdale, this is a definite stop for any follower of the blues, or rock & roll, for that matter. We have made arrangements with the Shack Up Inn to hold a blues party on Sunday night, February 5th. Blues band and blues jam will be playing through the night. Lodging is very affordable and unique. See site for details: http://www.shackupinn.com/

It's quite the blues lover's deal!

Richard Schaefer
President, MnBS
