Singer Lawrence Lebo brings her inimitable style of

blues and roots music to McCabe’s Guitar Shop at 3101 Pico Boulevard in Santa

Monica tonight, March 22.

The 8 pm concert follows on the heels of the wide

international success of her latest CD release titled “The Best of Don’t Call

Her Larry: Blues Mix.”

Ian McHugh, host of “Blues In The Night” from the UK,

said Lebo delivers songs directly, adding there’s no mistaking the meaning or

the emotion.

“Some people are blessed, it’s that simple,” McHugh

said. “When you hear one note of BB King’s guitar, you know it’s him. The same

thing goes for Lawrence Lebo, a woman blessed with not just a great voice, high

toned and beautiful, but with a sense of musicality that is definitely one of a

kind.”

On her new CD, McHugh said both her voice and musicality

are in full effect.

“She has a way of phrasing a line that could never be

anyone else, her voice sliding into and out of notes in a way that’s amazingly

blue, microtonal in the way that people like Muddy Waters were, it’s properly

spine tingling, and she wisely eschews undue flash,” he said.

Tickets to tonight’s show are $15, which are available

at www.mccabes.com, or by calling 310.828.4497.

On Sunday, March 24, Lebo will teach a one-day “Blues

and Rock Vocal” workshop at McCabe’s Guitar Shop at 1 pm (tickets $40 –
