Autumn Blues with Fiona Boyes 28/4/18
What a show! Fiona was in fine fettle, opening with a solo acoustic set and working her way through her very fine guitar and Guitar Box collection. A spellbinding mix of guttural dirty blues and thought provoking blues ballad. Her story telling is exemplary and we hung on every word.
Enter the boys for the second set and we were lifted to the next level and then the next! "The Anchor" Dennis Kipridis on bass, solid and musical as ever. "Shuffle king" Micky Garcia. adding subtle spice and bite, sometimes mean, some times lean. "Cumon Snooks where are you? get up here!" Then to the next level of superb interplay exchanging and weaving throughout solos and melodic story lines . extremely impassioned stuff!
Fiona is the real deal and an absolute gem and the lads truly held their own.
Honoured to have been part of your journey to our deep south, Fiona. Please come back again!
