A soul-full, heart-heavy, lust-inducing musical journey
Well-known Perth singer, the delectable Miss Jessie Gordon has joined with two of Perth blues world's guitarists, Jon Matthews and Mark Turner to form The Dirty Blues Trio.
Together, performing at the fringe as the Dirty Blues Trio take you on a journey into the sinful, longing, world of the Blues in the show called The Sinning Edition.

As singer Jessie says: 'Whether your weakness of choice is lust, gluttony, sloth, greed, envy, wrath or pride, without a doubt there's a blues song about your particular sin.'
Jessie Gordon, who is also a part of the Cottontail Trio, won awards at Fringe World 2013, 2014 and 2015. Jon Matthews and Mark Turner are also part of The Darling Buds of May, who will be performing Fever at this year's Fringe World.
