Testimonials

"Bishop is a revelation, belting dynamic blues ... 
with the blistering guitar of her husband Chris Carlson." 
- Robert Hurwitt, San Francisco Chronicle

“She’s dangerous!” 
- Bo Diddley

"Her rich blues voice sounds sometimes like a 60 year old black man, sometimes like a little girl. It's a voice that will caress you like a mother, then scare the hell out of you like a mutha"

BIO

“She’s dangerous!” 

-- Bo Diddley on Duffy Bishop.

Duffy Bishop is a force of nature. A powerful blues blaster, a sultry soul singer, a presence who connects with her audience in a deeply personal way be it in an intimate club or huge festival.

Over the course of her four decade career she has shared the stage with many legends including Ruth Brown, John Lee Hooker, Etta James, Gatemouth Brown, Lou Rawls, Bonnie Raitt, Shemekia Copeland, Bo Diddley and Bobby Blue Bland to name a few.

With her long-time collaborator, guitarist and husband Chris Carlson, they have played venues across the USA, Canada, Norway, Japan, Hong Kong, and Austria.

When not touring with their band, Duffy and Chris join Teatro ZinZanni, a circus/ cabaret/tent show in Seattle, San Francisco and Europe. Duffy stars in the lead role as Madame ZinZanni, a role also performed by Thelma Houston, Joan Baez and Ann Wilson.

Duffy played Janis Joplin in a Seattle production of the original play Janis. Sam Andrew, guitarist for Janis' band Big Brother and the Holding Company, was an advisor on the show. Through that connection, Duffy performed with Big Brother and toured Japan with the band.

Duffy even performed the role of Dr. Frankenfurter in The Empty Space Theater's production of The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

“Who Is Duffy Bishop And Why Is She Not World Famous?” a documentary on her life, was released in 2010.

Discover for yourself the heart, the soul, the experience that is Duffy Bishop.
