Winnipeg Bluesman Billy Joe Green

The first Annual WinnipegBlues.com Music Awards were handed out last week at the Windsor Hotel in Winnipeg. Honouring Blues musicians who hail from the Canadian city, the awards ceremony was aired live on CKUW 95.9 FM, and hosted by the broadcaster’s Rockin’ Ronnie and E.B (Bluesday).
