Music is part of the Brewfest scene

Entertainment is part of the Bell Tower Brewfest and this year a great line up of musicians are scheduled to perform on Saturday, June 29 from 6 to 9 p.m. on Main Street in Placerville.

Shari Puorto Blues Band is playing blues at the Bell Tower from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m., Lauren Murphy is by Main Street Music from 6 to 9 p.m., and Dennis Johnson and The Mississippi Ramblers is near the Cozmic Café from 6 to 9 p.m.

 

Shari Puorto

Shari Puorto is “a soulful singer with a sexy and raspy sound. Her live performances immediately bring Janis Joplin to mind. Like Joplin, Puorto is a passionate performer with an energy that can rattle the foam in a pint of Pilsner,” said Kevin of Pubclub.com.

Puorto combines Melissa Ethridge, Etta James, Bonnie Rait and the soul of Joplin to project a powerful and dynamic live performance that quickly connects with her audience.

Her infectious enthusiasm overcomes listeners and her warm nature shines through her singing.

Her influences include Etta James, Aretha Franklin, Susan Tedeschi, the Black Crowes, Pat Benatar, the Doobie Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Koko Taylor and Eva Cassidy.

Puorto is a favorite on local radio stations from the east to west.

Some of her awards include: a 2010 Los Angeles Music Awards for her song “Free” in the Americana, Blues, Roots Song of the Year category and winner of the Best Female Vocalist at the South Bay Music Awards.

 

Dennis Johnson & The Mississippi Ramblers

Dennis Johnson is viewed as one of the elite slide guitar players performing today. Drawing comparisons to slide guitarists Robert Johnson and Roy Rogers, Johnson masterfully elevates the art of slide guitar across many genres of music including blues, New Orleans, rock and swing.

His first album, “Slide Show,” received critical acclaim when it rose to the Top 50 blues CD’s worldwide and No. 21 on the California Roots Radio Charts.

Johnson is working on a new album and spends time touring in the western United States at clubs and festivals, where his live performances get people dancing.

 

Lauren Murphy

Lauren has been compared to Gillian Welch, Emmylou Harris and Grace Slick. Brassy, sensitive and powerful, she captivates her audience with finely crafted tales that span the gambit of the human condition.

Born in Baton Rouge, La., she cut her teeth on the diversity of the New Orleans counter culture, and has worked with many well-known artists over the years.

She performs as both a solo artist and as a singer/songwriter and guitarist for the “Lansdale Station” band with husband and lead vocalist Judge Murphy.

She is a writer, artist, poet, wife and mother residing in El Dorado County.

No tickets are required for designated drivers or those wishing to listen to the music.
