A distinctive finger-picking and slide guitarist, Fiona Boyes’ soulful, authoritative style has earned her unprecedented recognition overseas as an Australian artist.
Winner of the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, she has toured widely, performing at acoustic, guitar, jazz, and blues festivals, clubs and cultural centers in more than 20 countries.
Equally at home on acoustic or electric guitars, her mostly original repertoire is like a Blues travelogue. Listen to her play and you’ll hear Delta slide guitar, single chord Mississippi Hills grooves, intricate country blues finger picking, along with material drawn from the classic blues sounds of New Orleans, Chicago and Memphis. ‘Voodoo in the Shadows’ extends her exploration of the musical stylings of Mississippi and Louisiana, featuring swampy electric guitar along with a collection of unique cigar box guitars and a rare National ResoLectric Baritone.
As her friend and mentor, the late, great Hubert Sumlin said. ‘She’s got it! I’ve played with all of them – and she’s got it!’
