The Edmonton Blues Hall of Fame Foundation Board of Directors announces the cancellation of the 2020 Edmonton Blues Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony and Celebration. Although it was scheduled to take place on May 31, 2020 at the Blues on Whyte in Edmonton, the Board of Directors knew early in March that it would be difficult to plan such an event with the uncertainty of the COVID-19 virus and have made the collective decision to cancel. The safety of everyone who works so hard to make this event happen, and all of the supporters and blues fans is paramount.
The Board is pleased to announce the awardees who were selected for induction into the Edmonton Blues Hall of Fame for 2020:
Jim Guiboche, Edmonton musician, in the Performer Category
Terry Wickham, producer of the Edmonton Folk Music Festival, in the Builder Category
Donald Ray Johnson, Calgary musician, in the Legend Category
We congratulate you all and look forward to celebrating your achievements at a later date when we can all safely come together.
We would like to thank the volunteers, musicians, supporters, sponsors, Blues on Whyte staff, and everyone who puts their heart and soul into planning the annual Edmonton Blues Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony and Celebration.
Please continue to support our community and musicians in whatever way you are able – though music purchases, on-line attendance at events, donations, and please congratulate these awardees (virtually of course) and let them know we appreciate all that they do.
