Boyes, Blessings and Blues - Topix
The International Blues Challenge is one of my favorite events, as it helps to launch many relatively unknown talents, who have worked hard to be recognized. I began taking note of Fiona Boyes when she became an IBC winner in 2003. As a one time listener of ABS internet radio, her upbeat friendly voice could be heard coming to you from Melbourne, Australia. Recently, I had the fortune of seeing Fiona on at least three separate occasions. I also had the unexpected pleasure of having lunch with the finger picking guitarist extraordinaire, and her husband, Steve, The Preacherman, who is ordained and has an interesting story to tell as well. Between the two of them, they make a team that works in the industry.
