Event description

Canberra Blues Society proudly presents Victorian Blues Music Hall of Fame inductee Fiona Boyes for an intimate solo performance in The Keller.

“I ain’t never seen a woman finger-pick a guitar like that since Memphis Minnie. She’s the best gal guitar player I heard in more than 35 years” - Willie ‘Pinetop’ Perkins, Grammy-winning Delta pianist

'She’s got it …. you know what I’m talkin’ about, she’s got it! I’ve played with all the great players, and she’s got it!' - Hubert Sumlin, legendary Howlin' Wolf Band guitarist.

Fiona Boyes plays deep Blues, influenced by a myriad of traditional regional styles. She has carved an international reputation as a blues guitarist, bandleader, vocalist and songwriter. International reviewers have described her as a ‘musical anomaly’ and ‘Bonnie Raitt’s evil twin’! She is the only Australian artist to ever be recognised in the American Blues Foundation ‘Blues Music Awards’, with 8 nominations.

Fiona’s soulful, authoritative style has earned her unprecedented recognition overseas as an Australian artist. The first Australian winner of the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, she has toured widely, performing at acoustic, guitar, jazz, and blues festivals, clubs and cultural centres in more than 20 countries.

Join us for a wonderful evening as Fiona’s music takes us on a ‘virtual Deep South road trip’.
