    I like the way Imogen Heap sings Blues songs. She's got a great version of Rollin' And Tumblin' with Jeff Beck. (Also note his amazing Bassist Rhonda Smith)./ I've recently been listening to Imelda May. Check her youtube video "live session- Train Kept A Rollin" and "Imelda May @ 100 Club"! She also does awesome covers of 'Dealin' With The Devil', 'My Babe', and 'Rollin' And Tumblin' (live at 'The Boardwalk')/ A lot of other old-school Blues gals are still getting great recordings out, like: Rory Block, Etta James, Bonnie Raitt, Koko Taylor, Maria Muldaur, Marcia Ball, Lou-Ann Barton, Shemekia Copeland and Sue Foley./ There are a whole bunch of great 'up-and-coming' women Blues musicians for sure. They include: Shannon Curfman, Deborah Coleman, Joanne Shaw Taylor, Louise Hoffsten, Dani Wilde, Deanna Bogart, Erja Lyytinen, Gina Sicilia, Tracy Conover, Carolyn Wonderland, Fiona Boyes, Jo-Ann Kelly and, -the Memphis Minnie inspired- Little Miss Higgins!
