Debut album launch, 'Blues for Minnie'. Honoring powerful blues women, Kaliopi & the Blues Messengers have honed in on pre-WW delta blues and arranged the works of Memphis Minnie as a foundation having developed their unique texture with double-bass & brushes flavour layered with early dixie piano, weaving clarinet blues licks, and delta guitar swinging grooves & shuffles topped with Kaliopi's soulful vocals having released 2 singles with official video clips and a 3 track EP Sampler all streaming worldwide.
