Results: Best Self-Produced Recording Competition
Six self-produced CDs were submitted to the Minnesota Blues Society for this year's competition.

Congratulations to Paul Barry on "Blow Your Cool," his winning recording. That entry, with the requisite scores provided by the judges, arrived at the Blues Foundation in Memphis on Wednesday, October 31st. It is entered into the Blues Foundation's competition at the International Blues Challenge in January 2019.
We had excellent entries, all with great music, and close scores towards the top. MnBS sincerely thanks all those who entered and hope you’ll try again soon.
We wish you the best, Paul, you make us proud!!
