The Montreal Blues Society will be holding a Quebec to Memphis contest again this fall to determine which acts will represent Quebec in the Solo/Duo and Band categories in Memphis. The 33rd International Blues Challenge (IBC 2017) will be held January 31- February 4, 2017 in the Beale Street Historic District. Blues acts sponsored by blues societies from around the world will vie for top spot at the largest gathering of blues musicians in the world. This will be the 4th edition of Quebec to Memphis hosted by the Montreal Blues Society. Quebec acts have placed favourably in Memphis in the past, with semi-final and finalist appearances by Michael Jerome Browne and Dawn & Paul. This past January, the Montreal Blues Society was represented by the Paul DesLauriers Band, who made it all the way to the finals, finishing 2nd worldwide, out of 119 competing bands. Here is what you need to know about the Quebec to Memphis competition before you make it to Memphis:

***** OUR GUESTS *****
MICHAEL DI RE (The Muddy Wheel) Two short years ago, Michael Di Re was climbing the corporate ladder, writing songs in his spare time solely a means of finding comfort. He didn’t think much of his songs at the time – writing was just something he felt he needed to do. That all changed on a visit London, when Michael began performing his original compositions in local pubs. Spurred on by the positive feedback he received, Michael returned home determined to find the right musicians to collaborate with on new music. Thus, The Muddy Wheel was born. https://www.facebook.com/muddywheel/ 
BEATRICE KEELER A native of Kingston, Beatrice Keeler moved to Montreal on a whim, and it’s a decision she has not come to regret. A semi-finalist on the fourth season of La Voix, Beatrice is currently is set to release her debut EP “Flotsam” this fall. She may eventually earn her degree in Creative Writing from Concordia if the fun of performing stops getting in the way. https://www.facebook.com/beatricekeeler
