Singer/songwriter Dora Gholson headlines Larry Baeder's Wednesday Night Blues Unplugged Concert Series

KEY WEST, Fla. (August 13, 2012) -- Michigan native Dora Gholson, songwriter, co-guitarist and lead vocalist for Key West-based band Larry Baeder & The MuseGurus, is a poetic lyricist and an astonishingly engaging singer.

And on August 15 at 8 p.m., she will headline the Wednesday Night Blues Unplugged Concert Series featuring legendary guitarist Larry Baeder performing alongside a different blues artist, either local or visiting, every week.

Gholson can turn a one-syllable word into a five-syllable word that encompasses six notes and two octaves and has the vocal agility to sing all around the note and land squarely on pitch, The MuseGurus album notes note.

Gholson has a rich and heart-felt vocal sound, which she employs in a skillful and soulful manner that remains with the listener long after the performance is over. She has been singing most of her life and professionally in the Key West area since 2006.

Also at Island Dogs this week:
  • Internationals — Friday, August 17, 2012: Headed by Tony Durante, the Internationals is a new Key West band that will play at Island Dogs on Friday, August 17, from 8 p.m. 
  • Con Leche — Saturday, August 18, 2012: Con Leche brings its “tropical Hip Hop with a twinge of jest” to Island Dogs on Saturday, August 18, at 8 p.m.
