Fiona Boyes joins Johnny Sansone at Yackandandah Hotel and Baileys of Glenrowan for two North East shows this January

The queen of Australian blues Fiona Boyes will join Johnny Sansone for two North East shows this month.

The pair perform at Yackandandah Hotel on Friday, January 19, and Baileys of Glenrowan on January 20.

Boyes is first artist from outside the US to win the International Blues Challenge in Memphis and her live performances portray her deep love of the genre with growling vocals and innovative guitar.

Immersed in the melting pot of the New Orleans music scene from a young age, Sansone has forged a reputation as an amazing live performer, with a powerful stage presence, and a masterful command of the harmonica.
