Fiona Boyes at the Surf Club

Fiona Boyes IMG_0889, originally uploaded by NoVARon.

I first had the opportunity to see Fiona Boyes on the 2005 Legendary Rhythm & Blues Cruise. More recently she was Chick Hall’s Surf Club where she gave a wonderful performance of acoustic blues although the show was sparsely attended. She has a really ebullient (I like this word) personality and enjoys performing. She writes plenty of original material but really is rooted in older styles of blues as opposed to some acoustic artists. She sings wonderfully and can handle a Memphis Minnie number as good as almost anyone alive today. Here is the link to my flckr photoset with several pictures of her, all from this show.
