Carolyn Wonderland is renowned for her over the top live performances. A sensational songwriter and a multi-instrumentalist who just may pick up a trumpet, mandolin, lap-steel, accordion or jump behind a piano, alongside her usual axe of choice, the guitar. This Austin-based artist has worked with artists from that city such as Ruthie Foster, Cindy Cashdollar, Guy Forsythe, and she has also toured with the likes of Buddy Guy, Bob Dylan and Johnny Winter. Dallas Observer musical critic Matt Weitz had this to say about Wonderland: “One of the most impressively powerful voices recently heard anywhere, regardless of sex. Able to boon, cajole, promise and growl with equal power, she plays guitar with much the same forcefulness!”

Carolyn Wonderland returns to Portland for a night of terrific blues guitar at the Alberta Rose Theatre (3000 NE Alberta St) for an 8:00 pm show on Wednesday, July 17th. Tickets are $15.00 advance and $18.00 at the door. Minors are allowed with a parent or guardian. You can purchase tickets through www.albertarosetheatre.com. Shivering Timbers opens the show.

 

Wonderland will also be appearing at the Oregon Country Fair on July 13th & 14th. For more information, visit www.oregoncountry fair.org.
