Rory Block

When: Fri., Jan. 11, 8 p.m. 2013

The right hand of Rory Block is a music marvel: Popping strings from beneath or slapping them all from above, her fingers hooking and straightening in an instant, Block elicits an army of effects from the six strings of her acoustic guitar. Those techniques afford her one-woman country blues the urgency of a crack backing band, the need for a drum kit supplanted by her palm and the woody body of her instrument. Block is a tight coil of the blues; with every reading of a blues classic, she again bounds forward. —Grayson Currin

Price: $13-21
