Welcome to the UKBlues Awards Website

The home of the blues awards scheme created by the UKBlues Federation to give the blues community in the UK the opportunity to recognise and applaud those involved with the blues in the UK.





If you missed this year’s acclaimed Awards presentation event you can still watch on our YouTube channel or on Facebook 

The event was produced and created by Paul Long and featured guest presenters including Joe Bonamassa, Cerys Matthews, Erja Lyttinen, Bob Harris, Kaz Hawkins, Mike Vernon and Jon Cleary. The Awards named after their late husbands were presented by Lorna Fothergill and Suellen Raven.

The compere was Paul Jones who also presented a special feature remembering the late Chris Barber in which he reminisced about the man who many credit with introducing the Blues to the UK with Andy Fairweather Low.
