Award-winning bluesy artist with a siren’s voice, Norine Braun will appear at Wednesday on the Wharf July 30 with her trio to introduce her newly acclaimed album Conventus the Eye of the Heart.

Touring as a trio, the dark and silky vocals of Braun, who also plays guitar, are joined by “Queen of the Trills” Alice Fraser on keys, and the electrifying Leonard on ukulele, penny whistle and blues harp.

Braun’s awards include the Los Angeles Music Awards and Artists for Literacy. She has appeared at many clubs and festivals and the new full-length CD is her ninth album.

It follows her songwriting journey through life-threatening illness, a death in the family, new beginnings and the celebration of life. The songs are as honest and lyrically strong as roots and blues-rock gets.

Information on Norine Braun and her work is available at www.norinebraun.com.

Wednesday on the Wharf begins at 6:45 p.m. Admission is by donation.
