The association France Blues has organized in collaboration with the Toulouse Blues Society a new edition of the France Blues Challenge that every year takes place in a different festival. This year the event was held at The Guitare en Save Festival, in a beautiful open air place in the middle of the countryside and near Toulouse. The challenge chooses the artists who will represent France at the European Blues Challenge, as well as the solo/duo and band which will also represent France at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis.
