Fiona Boyes and the Fortune Tellers - LUCKY 13Fiona Boyes and the Fortune Tellers - LUCKY 13
{2006 Yellow Dog Records}
Legendary Blues artists are acclaiming Fiona as one of the great emerging blues women of our day. This Australian has toured the world with her bands, recorded over 6 CD’s, won the IBC as a solo acoustic act in 2003 (only woman ever to win the award), and now tour’s and performs with legends of blues almost daily.

On Christmas Eve 2005, Fiona signed with Memphis label, Yellow Dog Records and headed off to the studio to create some great music with legends of the business. The latest release, titled: “Lucky 13” is currently ranked #5 on the USA “Living Blues Charts” as of October 2006.
