It is open to all but must feature only artists that have played live in Europe between November 2015 and October 2016. You can nominate your own material but due to copyright restrictions YouTube links are not admissible.

After a very fine set from Bluesman Mike Francis, Bex Marshall wound up what has been a truly amazing festival season celebrating the 35th Anniversary of the European Blues Awards. The show in Manchester UK at the Waterside Arts Theater was the last of a number events that have been staged throughout Europe during 2016 with the kindness and support of artists and promoters alike to carry the message of the blues to a whole new generation and audience. A very big thank you to all that were involved and of course those who witnessed some of the best performances ever.             EBA Team
