Voting has now ended for European Blues Awards 2014

This evening voting closed in this year’s European Blues Awards with incredible tens of thousands of participants making this by far the biggest response ever. Many thanks to all that have supported the Awards and helped to promote the awareness of the world’s greatest musical genre. Thanks also for all your wonderful messages that make our non-sponsored unfunded efforts so worthwhile.


The late Jack Bruce

European Blues Awards 2014 are dedicated to the late great Jack Bruce who sadly passed away since this year’s voting process began last Thursday. Our thoughts are with his family at this time and the world of blues is devastated by the news.

Recorded Category returns for European Blues Awards 2014


Record disc

For 2014 we are re-introducing the Best Recording category section in the European Blues Awards but due to social media extension, with a difference… Voting will begin as normal once the nominations have been posted from 15th October. Therefore if you hear anything especially wonderful over coming months (or have a special new release or session to shout about) please share it by posting on twitter any Monday from 15.00 EST/20.00 GMT using the hash tag #BluesHour in your tweet.

Recordings in the public domain, such as broadcast sessions and album material by an artist/artists who have played live in Europe since November 2013 are applicable and we look forward to receiving your suggestions links and recommendations. (NB YouTube soundtracks cannot qualify for this category due to world copyright restrictions)  The European Blues Awards are uniquely independent and free from sponsorship thus reflecting the true opinion of the European fan base.                                                                                                                                The EBA team  @blueshour
