Sun., April 28, Laurie Morvan
PowerHouse Pub, 3 p.m., $5
If you missed Laurie Morvan the last time she passed through Sacramento, don't miss her Sunday-afternoon show where she'll rock the PowerHouse Pub with a style that is influenced by Southern rock and guitar-driven blues. Her guitar work can be compared to Stevie Ray Vaughan's, and it was his style of electric blues that changed the direction of Morvan's music. She's the lead guitarist and vocalist in her band and a force on stage. She's been writing songs since she first picked up a guitar, and she's released several albums, including Fire It Up!, which won the International Blues Challenge award for best Best Self Produced CD in 2010. 614 Sutter Street in Folsom, www.lauriemorvan.com.
