Mini Muddy Awards: The biggest single night for the Portland blues community returns after a one-year hiatus. This year the gala event will be held at Lovejoy Rooftop, the event side of Botanist on Wednesday, November 3rd. The Cascade Blues Association presents the 'Mini' Muddy Awards, honoring musical achievements from the past two-year period (Sept 1, 2019, through Aug 31, 2021) as awards are handed out recognizing outstanding musicians, venues, recordings, events, and more.
This year's ceremony will include ten categories, including some new ones, that best reflect the modified circumstances that have existed over the past year and a half, and were voted on by CBA members in mid-October through an online ballot.
Music will feature separate All-Star sets assembled by Rae Gordon and Ben Rice.
