CAROLYN WONDERLAND at Blues on the Green 7-29-09

Carolyn. What can you say? She plays and sings like no other that I've ever seen.
Blues on the Green is a free, summer series put on by KGSR. It is held at Zilker Park (home of the ACL Fest) but this year it's taking place at Waterloo Park due to some renovation at Zilker. Waterloo is much, much smaller.
Carolyn had her band, which consists of keyboards and drums. With her, you don't need much else.
The 1st set was somewhat on the mellow side, I thought. It was good, just not rowdy. The 2nd set, however, had everybody up and dancing from the get go. This set also brought out special guests. Guy Forsyth played harmonica, guitar and did some singing. Shelley King came out and sang harmony, did one of her own songs called "Summer Wine." This is a killer, catchy, little number. Once you hear it, you will be humming it continually. Guy did a classic background vocal on this one. Also helping out was a guy on trumpet. Didn't catch his name but he has been showing up lately and playing with Carolyn.
Another fun, rocking time tonight in Austin.
