Sean Carney’s BluesFray Tuesday series continues with the Laurie Morvan Band, who will share the stage with Sean Carney on guitar. The Laurie Morvan Band is a five-piece, high-energy, rockin’ blues band lead by its fiery female lead guitarist/vocalist. A pumpin’, thumpin’, tight-as-nails machine from Long Beach, CA, the LMB has fired up over 70 festivals and 700 shows together throughout the USA, Canada and Europe.
Laurie’s much-anticipated sixth album "GRAVITY" (released in 2018) was an immediate hit with both fans and critics. "GRAVITY" was nominated for Best Blues Album of 2018 in the prestigious Downbeat Reader’s Poll. The Laurie Morvan Band has also garnered the attention of the international market with a nomination for Best New Artist in the Independent Blues Awards.
Laurie Morvan Band concerts feature the beautiful harmonies of Laurie and backup singer Lisa Morvan, as well as dueling solos between Laurie, keyboardist Tom Salyers and bassist Pat Morvan. Drummer Lonnie Jones drives this high-octane train. They are a tight-knit unit who love performing together. Their fun-loving enthusiasm leaps right off the stage…and it’s contagious!
