KAZ HAWKINS BAND WINS THE EUROPEAN BLUES CHALLENGE 2017

Monday, 10th April 2017


Kaz is a multi-award winning, fiercely independent, international recording and touring originals artist...

Her debut album ‘Get Ready’ wooed both the public and the critics, winning the Blues Matters Magazine’ Writers Poll Best Studio Album of 2015. To complete a hat trick in the month of September 2015, Kaz also accepted the prestigious Barry Middleton Award for Emerging Artist at the British Blues Awards (the first ever Northern Ireland recipient) and also received the Pure M Award for 2015 All-Ireland Best Female Act at a ceremony in Dublin. The success continued in 2016 with her follow up album ‘Feelin’ Good’ which was the UK Independent Blues Broadcasters Association album of the year, beating Joe Bonamassa.

Kaz Hawkins and the Band won the right to represent the UK at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis and European Blues Challenge in Denmark in the early part of 2017. The band went down a storm in Memphis and returned home as proud semi-finalists. AND, last week they headed to Horsen’s in Denmark and WON the European title.

Catch the band live with us on Saturday, 26th August. More here: Kaz Hawkins.
