2018 Blues Music Award Winners image

Great news from the 2018 Blues Music Awards in Memphis as two of this year’s Edinburgh Jazz and Blues Festival performers picked up awards.

Doug MacLeod who is performing at the Piccolo on Sunday 22 July picked up the award for the best Acoustic Album of the year. This follows on from him winning the Acoustic Artist award over the last two years. He wins the award for the brilliant album ‘Break the Chain’.

Also on the awards lineup was Southern Avenue. The band from Memphis took home the Best Emerging Artist Album award for their self-titled record. With songs ‘Don’t give up’ and ‘What did I do?’ the album has been garnering rave reviews both locally and internationally. The band also performed at the Blues Music Awards and you can see them live in Edinburgh on the 15 July at the George Square Spiegeltent.
