Best Blues Artist / Band

Gold Winner Garrett Mason

Silver Winner Joe Murphy & The Water Street Blues Band

Bronze Winner Shirley Jackson and her Good Rockin' Daddies

A siren song of sadness ringing from Bearly’s every Tuesday night, Garrett Mason’s brand of blues is dependably lovely and lonesome in equal measure. The son of local blues royalty Dutch Mason and a Juno winner in his own right, he prefers to let his guitar—and wicked fretboard dexterity—do the talking. Seeing how he’s won this award five times, we gather that’s how you like it, too.
