Release Notes

Two years ago, Canadian blues artist Sue Foley put together a two-CD compilation for Ruf Records called Blues Guitar Women. The album featured over two dozen female artists playing both traditional and contemporary blues. The third edition of the popular BluesCaravan tour represents a logical next step: This carefully chosen trio of performers reflects the diversity and dedication of a growing generation of female blues players. Fresh from the studio, where they collaborated on a brand new CD with producer Kevin Bowe (Tommy Castro, Paul Westerberg), they now bring you the blues - live - in all its shades and colors.

With ten studio albums to her credit, Sue Foley (CAN) is already a blues veteran. The Ottawa native began her recording career at the age of 24, storming the international scene with a string of successful releases on the Antone's and Shanachie labels. On her most recent Ruf Records release, New Used Car, she showed off a mature blend of blues and rock originals. Inspired by artists like Earl Hooker and Memphis Minnie, Foley's tasteful guitar playing goes deep. Her vocals ooze sensuality.

Deborah Coleman (USA) waited until her duties as a parent were fulfilled before devoting herself to music full-time in the mid-1990s. With her six albums, she's earned 11 W.C. Handy Award nominations and a reputation as "one of blues music's most exciting young talents" (USA Today). Coleman rocks hard and never lets up. 

The new kid on the block is Roxanne Potvin (CAN) – an exciting new talent from the French-speaking province of Quebec. Potvin began playing guitar at 15 and released a self-produced collection of original songs in 2003. The buzz that CD created led to her breakout release The Way it Feels, produced by Grammy-winner Colin Linden and featuring the all-star support of Bruce Cockburn, John Hiatt and Daniel Lenois. Released at Ruf Records in January 2007 (RUF 1128).
