A Baker’s Dozen of Blues: January 11, 2016


BakersDozen15Indeed! As we all settle into our 2016 mode, we at Blues411 are getting closer to our mission of bringing you the needed tools to make the Blues thrive.



Coming up real soon is the epic event known as the International Blues Challenge. Held every year in Memphis this year looks to be a pretty fabulous event (as they have always been). Still time to get yourself there and join the rowdy, blues loving framily.


Our new #1 is Fiona Boyes. Hailing from Australia and a superb finger picker, songwriter, entertainer and one helluva person, Fiona has firmly established herself in the upper echelon of the Blues world. She is nominated for a Blues Music Award on the heels of winning a Jimi Award in 2015.


Our Amuse Bouche this week features another look backward. We’d like to revisit some of our past #1’s over the last three years. So stick and stay and enjoy all that we have put on the plate for ya.
