Carolyn Wonderland, The Twisters and Earnest Ernie’s Pan Fried Blues at O’Brians
March 1, 2014 @ 7:30 pm
Carolyn Wonderland has the goods. A triple threat with her diverse songwriting, soulful vocals, and guitar goddess status – all featured on over twenty CDs, six of which are her releases – she has a pedigree in this business that’s hard to match. A bit of a renegade, she likes to incorporate elements of Blues, Country, Swing, Zydeco, Surf, Gospel, Soul, and some nights, maybe even a Cumbia into the musical mix. Recent years have seen her stretching out musically working some expert whistling and scat singing into her shows. In addition to her trusty guitar, “Patty,” Carolyn has been regularly playing her trumpet, and even occasionally the accordion, mandolin, or keys…she is threatening to take up nose flute if someone doesn’t stop her.
Paying dues to the blues tradition, The Twisters swing hard with two inspired vocalists, tightly woven harp & guitar lines, upright bass and a relentless driving rhythm section forging a groove that refuses to be denied.
Each of the members has brought his musical talents and influences to the table, resulting in a potpourri of “Roots Cuisine” guaranteed to satisfy the most discerning palette. From deep in the Mississippi Delta to early Chicago shuffles, from infectious Texas grinders to West Coast jump, funky swamp-soaked Louisiana rhythms, to blues-a-billy swing, The Twisters serve up the goods. Top it all off with strong original compositions and a live show renowned for rockin’ the house and there’s only one thing left… do yourself a favour and see what the storm’s all about when The Twisters play tonight.
