Oct. 30 Carolyn Lee Jones
Carolyn Lee Jones' influences and choices of genre are as broad as her vocal stylings are rich. She wraps her audience around her finger with the simplest lyric and fascinates with her mixture of styles.

She'll be joined by pianist Brad Williams, bassist Jonathan Fisher, and drummer Andrew Griffith, as well as guest trombonist Carl Murr.
