Music: Carolyn Wonderland at Winter Blues Fest

This fiery Austin-based redhead can rip the Blues on the six-string, and I mean hard-as-hell lead licks and everything that goes with it.

I first heard Carolyn Wonderland sing and play guitar when she appeared on an episode of Austin City Limits. This fiery Austin-based redhead can rip the Blues on the six-string, and I mean hard-as-hell lead licks and everything that goes with it. Wonderland’s latest album is called Live Texas Trio, a fired-up concert album that has her singing and riffing on songs like Blind Willie Johnson’s “Samson and Delilah” and “Nobody’s Fault But Mine,” Doug Sahm’s “At The Crossroads” and her own compositions like “Money In The Game,” “Walk On” and “Only God Knows When.” Read more about the artist in this week's Sound Advice.


Carolyn Wonderland performs at The Phoenix Saturday as part of the Winter Blues Fest. More info/tickets: cincyblues.org .
