We couldn't think of a more fitting person to play this year's prize, especially as Fiona won the International Blues Challenge
(Solo/Duo category), in Memphis in 2003.
Tickets are $5 and are available via the link above ,or at any ARBA event throughout the year leading up to the MBC Fundraiser, which is being held at the Semaphore Workers Club on the 23rd of October.
