Carolyn Wonderland at 41 Bridge Street Live
Rebecca stands in for Gary (“the Boss”)
The band seemed ready for a good time.
She is known as a musical force equipped with the soulful vocals of Janis and the guitar slinging skills of Stevie Ray. Wonderland reaches into the depths of the Texas blues tradition with the wit of a poet.
Along with the guitar she played lap steel
Wonderland’s ability to whistle remains most unusual. Whistling is a uniquely vocal art seldom invoked in modern music, yet it’s among the most spectacular talents the human voice possesses. Also she used vocals calls that brought Leon Redbone to mind.
Her music has played in television series such as Time of Your Life and Homicide.
She sang “Is there Room at the Inn,” which can be purchased on Itunes, with the money going to Doctors without Borders.
