FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Toronto, ON October 27, 2004—Women of the blues will
belt, growl, and croon their way into the hearts of audiences at The Toronto
Blues Society’s Women’s Blues Revue, Saturday, November 27, 2004, 8 p.m. at
Massey Hall. The Toronto Blues Society’s crown jewel event features powerful
emerging and established women in the business today, all from diverse
backgrounds, and all performing blues in a wide range of styles. This year’s
lineup includes Jackie Richardson, Sue Foley, Rita Chiarelli, Dawn Tyler
Watson, Serena Ryder and Ndidi Onukwulu.

Throughout the years, this popular bluesy showcase has routinely sold-out to
capacity audiences. It has also launched the careers of women like Amanda
Marshall, Rita Chiarelli and Holly Cole, and featured others like Shirley
Eikhard (who penned the monster hit Something To Talk About), Sue Foley, and
Salome Bey, and has included unusual artists like Lee Aaron and Carole Pope.

This year marks a very special year, as the Revue moves to Massey Hall after
outgrowing several venues. Once again CBC Radio One's Saturday Night Blues,
with host Holger Peterson, is recording the entire evening’s performances,
which will be featured throughout the coming year. Also from CBC, Shelagh
Rogers of Sounds Like Canada returns as MC.

As always, the headliners are backed by an all-star cast featuring Women’s
Blues Revue musical director Lily Sazz on keyboards; Margaret Stowe on
guitar; Suzie Vinnick on bass; Michelle Josef on drums; Colleen Allen and
Carrie Chesnutt on sax; and Sarah McElcheran on trumpet.
