A veteran recording artist with 13 releases, Australia’s first lady of the Blues has 5 USA Blues Music Award nominations in 4 different categories, and more than 30 Australian music awards, spanning the blues, folk, jazz and Americana scenes. Fiona’s immersion in the wide musical and historical traditions that make up the Blues and her deep love of the art-form itself lends conviction and authenticity to her playing and songwriting.

Swampy 4 string cigar box guitar, bottle neck slide and rare National Reso-Lectric baritone; acoustic barrelhouse to electric Mississippi grooves, Fiona and the band will take you on a cool ‘road trip’ through the blues from Chicago down to New Orleans!
