Ooh! ooh! things have changed. Just when I thought I had a free weekend I've just been asked to play on Sunday out at the beautiful Adore Tea (Federation Square, Nicholls).  

Me and Mike Dooley and the ultra sassy lassy Pearl Noi will be doing the Jazz standards plus some earthy Blues with ooh! ooh! oomph!  Pls note: This will be a fairly casual-style show :-)

Here's a link to some video from last weekend's Adore Tea performance (even though the filming stopped right when I was about to hit that high note...).

Many of you would have heard about the cut backs at the Canberra School Of Music. Mike Dooley did too and come up with this little ditty

Happy days people, DJ

"Shut Down": Dorothy-Jane's latest album.


Blues Harp Women - the CD!

Blues Harp Women album cover, artistic drawing of female playing harmonica

This is a double compilation album curated by Norman Davis, a blues radio presenter from Idaho and released by Ruf Records. The album celebrates female harmonica players, with 31 tracks from players across the world, including 2 Aussies - Dorothy-Jane and Marion Turner.  Norman says “I hope this album will shed some light on what has been a black hole in the blues universe. Perhaps this will help female players get the attention that has passed them by in the past.”  

The album can be purchased through itunes, Ruf Records and other online stores.
