About the event
Carolyn Dolan has been leading Rock, Blues, Jazz, Country and Funk bands for over three decades. She has been entertaining audiences for over thirty years with her soulful bluesy voice accompanied by the harmonica which is always by her side ready to deliver! She can dive into powerful R & B tunes, deliver a smooth jazz standard, or embrace a gentle country ballad. Her country roots run so deep that on October 24, 2015 Carolyn Dolan was inducted into the Western Swing Hall of Fame for her dedication and commitment to the preservation, promotion, and perpetuation of Western Swing Music.
Carolyn Dolan and her band BIG RED, a Rockin' Soulful group fully devotes itself to playing raw, classic blues mixed with funk and soulful rhythms. She shares the stage with her guitarist for over twenty years, Mick Clarke from London, England who plays the “Big Red “ Gibson 335 like it’s meant to be heard!
He is truly one of the great English Blues purists to come out of the early English Blues/Rock scene in the late 60's; playing with Long John Baldry and Chuck Berry to name a few.
Together with funk keyboardist Ron Savage, and the solid rhythm section featuring Glade Rasmussen on bass & Steve Self on drums, forms the powerful and uncompromising rhythm section for this Rockin' down-to-earth roots Band.
