They're back – like you've never seen them before!

In August 2014 Eliana Cargnelutti, Sadie Johnson and Heather Crosse paid a visit to legendary producer Jim Gaines. The result is an album with nine originals and three cover songs – released just in time for the new Blues Caravan tour. If that recording is any indication, the new line-up may just have what it takes to top the "Girls With Guitars" of the past!

In 2011, three of the hottest female musicians on the contemporary blues scene embarked on a tour calling themselves "Girls with Guitars." Their appearances at clubs and festivals unleashed a wave of enthusiasm on both sides of the Atlantic. Nearly everyone involved – both audiences and the performers themselves – hoped the band wouldn't simply break up and fade into memory once the tour was over.

The good news was: The fun is about to continue! Starting in January 2012, the 8th edition of the annual Ruf Records Blues Caravan hits the road, this time under the heading "More Girls with Guitars."

This document of the tour was recorded live at Musichall Worpswede (Germany) on February 11th, 2012.

Her solo debut Groovin’ At The Crosse Roads shows what she's really about. It's all blues – with a soul twist. "I grew up singing Motown and a couple of my blues mentors did a lot of 70s soul. So that tends to come out in the songs that I'm writing," explains Crosse, who co-wrote five of the album's eleven tracks while also paying tribute to heroes such as Etta James and Big Mama Thornton. It's the kind of mix she relies on to get Mississippi crowds dancing on a Saturday night.
