Boyes to play the blues

Shepparton News - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Nathalia’s The G.R.A.I.N. Store will wrap up its year of events and ex­hi­bi­tions with a per­for­mance by award-win­ning blues artist Fiona Boyes. The mu­si­cian has just re­leased the al­bum

Voodoo in the Shad­ows and fin­ished up a tour of Eu­rope and South Africa.

The G.R.A.I.N. Store’s cu­ra­tor Kris­ten Re­tal­lick said Boyes was brought to the at­ten­tion of the venue by lo­cal ded­i­cated mu­sic lover, per­former and ci­gar box gui­tar en­thu­si­ast Pip Cowan.

“Pip met Fiona in Mis­sis­sippi when he was a long way from home and in a time of need,” Ms Re­tal­lick said.

“She has since sup­ported him mu­si­cally, as well as at this time, so he is now ask­ing peo­ple to come along and sup­port her by

com­ing along to this show.”

Mr Cowan de­scribed Boyes as one of the very best blues artists and gui­tarists in gen­eral in Aus­tralia.

Voodoo in the Shad­ows is Boyer’s 14th re­lease in a record­ing and per­form­ing ca­reer span­ning more than 25 years.

“This is the fi­nal per­for­mance event for The G.R.A.I.N. Store for 2018 and should be an ex­cel­lent af­ter­noon’s en­ter­tain­ment, with food avail­able and drinks at bar prices,” Ms Re­tal­lick said. Tick­ets are on sale at www.try­book­ or at Nathalia Post Of­fice or at The G.R.A.I.N Store.

The event will be held at The G.R.A.I.N. Store on Sun­day, De­cem­ber 2 at 4 pm. Tick­ets cost $30 for non-mem­bers and $25 for mem­bers.

Fiona Boyes will per­form at The G.R.A.I.N Store in Nathalia next month.
