Fiona’s CD’s & Vinyl
From the latest award-winning electric band release - ‘Voodoo in the Shadows’ - right back to earlier acoustic albums like ‘Sweet Jelly Roll’, each of my albums represents a moment in my Blues journey. I love the old-school idea of an album as ‘a body of work’, each with it’s own special mood and musical focus.
