Play It Forward Holiday Concert

Tickets: Freewill Donations Go to First Book, Supporting Hurricane Relief Efforts in Puerto Rico
Date: Thursday, December 28, 2017 | Time: 7 p.m.

An annual concert event now in its fifth year, Play It Forward brings together some of Door County’s best-loved musicians for an evening of seasonal music that is both festive and reflective. Inspired by the life and legacy of Bo Johnson, a young Sister Bay resident who died in 2012, “Play It Forward” does just what its name suggests: participating musicians donate their time, and proceeds from the evening go to benefit a worthy cause—this year, hurricane relief efforts in Puerto Rico. Play it Forward is an evening that celebrates the best of Door County: community, generosity, and good music.

“An extraordinary evening of music, community, and heart.” – DoorCounty.com

International Blues Challenge (IBC)

International Blues Challenge (IBC)

  • International Blues Challenge (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The International Blues Challenge represents the worldwide search for those Blues Bands and Solo/Duo Blues Acts ready to perform on the international stage, yet just needing that extra big break. Each Affiliate of The Blues Foundation has the right to send a band and a solo/duo act to represent its organization at the IBC.

The IBC is judged by blues professionals from across the world who have years of experience in listening to, producing, and creating blues music. The Blues Foundation has established a set of criteria by which all acts are evaluated throughout the five days of the IBC.

Affiliated organizations are required to stage a regional preliminary IBC competition, with the winner of that event representing the organization in the International Blues Challenge held annually in Memphis, TN along historic Beale Street. While Affilated Organizations are encouraged to follow The Blues Foundation’s structure and rules during their local challenges, each organization is free to structure its preliminary rounds as it sees fit, as long as a true challenge between multiple acts takes place resulting in a single band and/or solo/duo act being identified.
