Blues Caravan 2011The name says it all. “Girls with Guitars” – the 2011 Ruf Records Blues Caravan Tour – presents three of the scene’s hottest young female guitar slingers on a single stage.

Dani Wilde(UK) sings with the old-school fervor of Aretha Franklin, but also takes a cue from contemporaries like Duffy and Joss Stone. Her newest album, Shine, a collaboration with renowned producer Mike Vernon, shows off new levels of maturity as a singer, songwriter and guitarist. Says Paul Jones of BBC Radio 2: “She sings with more conviction and passion than old legends from the Mississippi Delta.”

At the tender age of 21, Samantha Fish (US) is already a hot property on the live music scene in and around her hometown of Kansas City, Missouri. Her high-heeled, rock-edged performances have won her a loyal local following and carried her to venues like Rosa’s Lounge in Chicago, where she opened eyes during the 2010 Chicago Blues Festival.

Multi-instrumentalist Cassie Taylor (US) has appeared on eight critically-acclaimed albums by her father, Otis Taylor, and was a featured vocalist on Gary Moore’s 2008 release Bad For You Baby. Still just in her early 20s, Cassie has been hailed for her commanding stage presence and “heavenly” voice (Boston Globe). Her music ranges from heart-wrenching ballads to hard-driving blues and doesn’t shy from topical subject matter.

This trio of young, passionate performers is backed by a top-flight band of road-tested professionals for more than two hours of live blues excellence.
