Baz posing with Clare the mannequinThe boys and I have had some great gigs lately.  Our trip to the South Coast was so much fun, with 3 great gigs and exceptional hosts.  At Narooma Quarterdeck Baz was convinced that resident model, Clare, was staring at him with keen interest. He was quite taken with her grass skirt and wished he'd brought his lawn mower.  Even when we explained that she was a mannequin, he still tried to kiss her...

Another outstanding gig was at The Exchange Hotel in Newcastle. A standing ovation is always good for the ego. Thanks heaps to the fabulous folk of Newcastle for coming out to see us. We will be back :)

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.
