A Muddy Award comes from the Portland, Oregon Cascade Blues Association, which means The Insomniacs have won Muddy Awards and not Shanachie Pub, as your article suggests. Also the writer of the article says "but some of his songs sound too cliche of the blues genre", referring to lyrics from the song "Directly From My Heart to You". When the writer says "his", I'm sure people will be shocked that Richard Penniman aka Little Richard, who wrote "Directly From My Heart To You" writes songs that are "too cliche of the blues genre". A little research on the part of the article's writer would have been a good idea.
