Fiona Boyes

November 2, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Armed with her electric guitar and unique cigarbox instruments, internationally acclaimed blueswoman Fiona Boyes presents songs and stories from her latest #1 Australian Blues Radio charting album ‘Voodoo in the Shadows’

USA reviewers have credited Fiona Boyes as ‘Bonnie Raitt’s evil twin’!  She is a distinctive blues guitarist, vocalist and songwriter and is the only Australian roots artist to ever be recognised in the America Blues Foundation (Memphis) ‘Blues Music Awards’, with 8 nominations – including 2019 ‘Traditional Female Blues Artist’ of the Year’.  Fiona’s music draws on a myriad of traditional styles, taking her audience on a ‘virtual Deep South road trip’.

“…one of the world’s best fingerpicking blues guitarists…her versatility means she’s impossible to categorise: she’ll jump from Louisiana swamp blues to driving Chicago sounds, rollicking New Orleans barrelhouse to wailing laments, and back again, in a 30-minute set.” – The Guardian, Australia.
