the notice read: This last week the 15th Annual Bare Bones International Independent Film, Arts & Music Festival program proclaimed: Honorees – Music Legend 2014 – Selby Minner – Blueswoman, Artist & Founder Of The OK Blues Hall Of Fame.

It went on to say, “Selby has worked tirelessly to develop the music community and spread the good word about Oklahoma Blues. From forming the Shady Lady Blues Band to becoming a co-founder of the Dusk til Dawn Blues Festival, Selby has had held her own in the International Blues scene for decades. Selby is headquartered in what was once a whiskey house operated by DC Minner’s grandmother Lura (from 1936 to 1968), in Rentiesville Oklahoma, a historically all Black town. Selby & DC Minner left years of traveling around the world to return to his birthplace to open the Down Home Blues Club (1988), then the Oklahoma Blues Hall of Fame (2004) and the 20+ years of the Dusk til Dawn Blues Festival (every Labor Day Weekend since 1991). The festival was started by this husband and wife musical team as a showcase of the region’s wealth of unknown blues talent. Since singer-guitarist-songwriter DC’s death in 2008, Selby and the non-profit Friends of Rentiesville Blues, Inc are continuing the legacy by keeping the festival alive and the blues alive. Whether teaching, performing solo guitar, or on bass and vocals fronting her band Blues On the Move – with newest addition Dan ‘Oklahoma Slim’ Ortiz on guitar – Selby demonstrates her prowess as the Blueswoman.”
