Blues Beat: Carolyn Wonderland celebrates new album at StageOne

Carolyn Wonderland is celebrating the release of her new album with a live performance Friday at StageOne in Fairfield.

Wonderland has been called a fiery blues rocker with incendiary guitar chops and raw, powerful vocals. An award-winning Texas guitar slinger, singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist, she’s marking the release of her Alligator Records debut album, “Tempting Fate.” The album, her 11th, was produced by famed master roots musician Dave Alvin, and features Wonderland’s signature, blistering six-string and lap steel playing, intense vocals and original songs, melding blues, rock and Americana.

GuitarTownCT Productions presents Jake Blount & Friends at Best Video Performance Space Friday. Blount is an award-winning banjoist, fiddler, singer and scholar. He is a 2020 recipient of the Steve Martin Banjo Prize. He specializes in the music of Black communities in the southeastern United States, weaving blues, bluegrass and spirituals into the old-time string band tradition to which he belongs. He tours domestically and internationally as a solo performer, with his duo Tui, and with his band. Blount will be accompanied by Isa Burke on fiddle and vocals, from Lula Wiles, Gus Tritsch on guitar and Nelson Williams on bass.

Friday, Dana Fuchs will be at Infinity Music Hall Norfolk. With Fuchs, you get a voice acclaimed by Classic Rock magazine as “juke-joint dirty and illicit, evoking Joplin, Jagger and a cigarette bobbing in a glass of bourbon.”

Now, she rips it up and starts again with her fourth album, which is all about hope and perseverance. Fuchs’ versatile career has embraced music, theater, and film. Born in New Jersey, she later moved to the small town of Wildwood, Florida with her musically oriented family. At age 12, she began singing in the First Baptist Gospel Choir. Inspired by her parents’ record collection, she moved to New York City to sing the blues after leaving high school.

Fuchs put the band on hold until 2008 to concentrate on silver screen commitments. From there, she ignited performance stages all over the world’s blues-rock circuit with her burnt-honey vocal and bruisingly honest songwriting. Fuchs is one of the best blues singers out there, with a phenomenal voice giving raw, powerful, vocals.

George Dudack’s Thanksgiving Party is at St Casimir’s, in Windsor (Poquonock), on Wednesday, the night before Thanksgiving, 8 p.m. to midnight. The band features Ryan Hartt, Mike Law, Nick Longo and Chris Vitarello.
