After Margret moved to Brisbane in 1996, she enjoyed collaborating with these marvellously talented singers,
sometimes in the only-in-Brisbane concert series Women in Voice.

"... out came the real Margret RoadKnight. a gutsy, growling, scat-screaming blues warrior who's "afraid of no men, and very few women". The band responds with obvious respect (and maximum volume, which is no threat to RoadKnight's massively powerful voice), the auditorium goes berserk, and RoadKnight becomes crowd favourite for the night". ( W in V #11, 2002)
