The Sierre Blues Festival will take place in the city of Sierre on Friday 16 and Saturday 17 September in a national and free edition.
The Sierre Blues Festival receives a prestigious award.
The Blues Foundation, based in Memphis, USA, is the organization that brings together the world of the Blues. Each year, it awards a prestigious prize, the “Keeping The Blues Alive” Award, to people and/or organizations who make or have made a significant contribution to the world of the Blues. These KBAs are awarded by a select panel of Blues professionals to those who are actively working to promote and preserve this music.
The news of the 2023 recipients has just been announced by the Blues Foundation and the Sierre Blues Festival will receive this international distinction on January 27th in Memphis during a special ceremony that will take place during the International Blues Challenge attended by more than 400 bands and solo/duos from around the world.
