On June 4th 2016 I competed once more in the Cascade Blues Associations Journey to Memphis preliminary challenge at the Rose Room in Portland Oregon . My dear friend and Blues partner Phil Newton was unanble to come this time so I ventured forth with his blessing to compete as a solo with just my trusty guitar and the great support of my wife Julia. Lo and Behold ! When all was said and done I was deemed victorious garnering the highest total solo/duo score. I am the CBA's representative at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis Tennesee on Beale Street for 2017. What an honor.
