Fiona Boyes 2009 Ambassador
We are honoured to announce that Australia’s own “fair haired, hard pickin’, down-home blueswoman”, Fiona Boyes, returns to Goulburn in 2009 as the official Ambassador of the 13th Australian Blues Music Festival.
Fiona is a multiple winner of every major performance and recording award in the Australian blues scene, winner of the International Blues Challenge in Memphis (2003) and nominated for the 2008 ‘Contemporary Female Blues Artist of the Year’ in the Blues Music Awards in Memphis.
She is renowned for her electric and accoustic guitar playing and her “tough, sexy, witty” vocals and songwriting. We are delighted to be working with Fiona to promote other talented Australian blues musicians through this unique annual event in Goulburn that has been described by the Blues Association of South East Queensland as “Australia’s peak blues event” and “the top Australian blues venue”.
As The National Festival of Australian Blues Music, Goulburn is a meeting place for the local industry and a showcase of Australia’s very best emerging and established blues talent from around the country.
