Enjoy Blues & Roots Music Tonight At McCabe’s In Santa Monica:

Singer Lawrence Lebo brings her inimitable style of blues and roots music to McCabe’s Guitar Shop at 3101 Pico Boulevard in Santa Monica tonight, March 22.

The 8 pm concert follows on the heels of the wide international success of her latest CD release titled “The Best of Don’t Call Her Larry: Blues Mix.”

Ian McHugh, host of “Blues In The Night” from the UK, said Lebo delivers songs directly, adding there’s no mistaking the meaning or the emotion.

“Some people are blessed, it’s that simple,” McHugh said. “When you hear one note of BB King’s guitar, you know it’s him. The same thing goes for Lawrence Lebo, a woman blessed with not just a great voice, high toned and beautiful, but with a sense of musicality that is definitely one of a kind.”

On her new CD, McHugh said both her voice and musicality are in full effect.

“She has a way of phrasing a line that could never be anyone else, her voice sliding into and out of notes in a way that’s amazingly blue, microtonal in the way that people like Muddy Waters were, it’s properly spine tingling, and she wisely eschews undue flash,” he said.

Tickets to tonight’s show are $15, which are available at www.mccabes.com, or by calling 310.828.4497.

On Sunday, March 24, Lebo will teach a one-day “Blues and Rock Vocal” workshop at McCabe’s Guitar Shop at 1 pm (tickets $40 – purchase on link above).
