Carolyn Wonderland has never forgotten where she came from. On her new album, “Peace Meal,” she brings the hard-won lessons of her own blessed life together with stories from some of the world’s best-known and most beloved songwriters (Bob Dylan, Janis Joplin, Robert Hunter, Elmore James, and Robert Johnson) to create a menu of sustaining, satisfying songs that offers musical food for thought to her growing legions of fans.
The musical force herself will be in Prairie du Chien this weekend for the 17th annual Prairie Dog Blues Fest. She will take the main stage at 8:30 p.m. Saturday, July 26. For details, visit prairiedogblues.com.
Internationally heralded as one of the best vocalists in her adopted hometown of Austin, Texas, Wonderland has also been highly touted as a guitar goddess and is quickly making a name for herself in her competitive neighborhood and far beyond.
