Fiona has achieved the unique honour of being the first Australian artist to be nominated for the Blues Music Awards (formerly W.C Handy Awards) in the 27 year history of the awards. Past winners include BB King, Buddy Guy, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Shemekia Copeland - you get the picture! This is a great indepth interview with Fiona, and should be available early March for streaming and podcast/download. Stand by - oh yeah, and we cut some live tracks for Salty Live! so we'll get a couple online soon as we can.
