On May 21 Rita Engedalen and Margit Bakken opens The Bluesfest Eutin in Germany with their show "Women in Blues". This will be the first performance in Germany, and hopefully it will lead to more European dates for their popular show with focus on the great female personalities in the history of Blues.
The blues ladies will also be presented by one of Germany's major radio stations, The Deutschland Funk.
