Scott Ballantine and Andra Faye
For the second year in a row, this excellent pair has nabbed Best Local Blues. The pair plays out all over the place (sometimes with Best Local Jazz winner Charlie Ballantine, Scott’s son). Guitarist Ballantine and mandolin/vocalist/fiddle player Faye make magic together — yes, blues, but jazz and country too.
