What´s the deal with FBA?

Finnish Blues Awards is a society, event and a marketing effort helping to spread the glorious message of arctic Finnish blues music. FBA showcases the coolest blues acts in Finland and gives stage also to the founding fathers of blue-and-white roots music. Finnish Blues Awards takes place in Helsinki in the middle of january. The darkest and coldest time of winter is just the right time to get warmed by Finnish blue notes!
