FROM MISSISSIPPI TO THE ‘CROSSROADS STAGE’, DUBBO, NSW!
Australia’s First Lady of the Blues, FIONA BOYES, teams up with USA bassist HEATHER CROSSE, direct
from Mississippi, y’all! These two blues women met at the original, legendary ‘Crossroads’ in
Clarksdale, Mississippi. While they’ve played festivals and gigs together at iconic Delta juke joints
like ‘Red’s Lounge’ and ‘Ground Zero’, Fiona and Heather are also respected teachers of their
instruments, presenting 3-day masterclasses at the annual Pinetop Perkins’ Workshop Experience in
HEATHER CROSSE is a bass player, vocalist and songwriter who honed her craft playing alongside
elder statesmen blues mentors, including Detroit/Arkansas bluesman St Thomas Jenkins. Born in
Louisiana, she is now the ‘go-to’ bassist in Clarksdale, considered to be the ‘Home of the Blues’.
With 21 years of professional playing under her belt, Heather teaches blues bass at the Pinetop
Perkins Workshops and has recorded for European record label Ruf Records. She lays down a mean
groove - and sings like an angel who’s just had a little sip of Mississippi moonshine!
FIONA BOYES is a distinctive internationally acclaimed blues guitarist, vocalist and songwriter. With
8 nominations in the USA Blues Music Awards for both her acoustic and electric performance,
Fiona’s original music draws on a myriad of traditional blues styles – expect a show full of cigarbox
slide, electric Mississippi grooves, fancy fingerpicking and songs from her #1 charting albums
‘Voodoo in the Shadows’ and ‘Box & Dice’. Fiona performed the inaugural concert at the Crossroad
Stage in Dubbo – and she can’t wait to come back and play for you again.
