BLUES | Mercedes Escobar 

Guatemalan singer-songwriter Mercedes Escobar is considered a "blues pilgrim" in her country, as well as one of its most promising talents. When Escobar was young, she was introduced to legends like Son House and Jimi Hendrix, and while exploring other facets of music with her guitar and voice, she has stayed true to the blues. Although she is a contemporary artist, her vocals are nostalgic, with a 19th century style that uses deep crescendos comparable to Screamin' Jay Hawkins.

Mercedes Escobar performs Wednesday, August 16, at Sticky Lips Juke Joint, 830 Jefferson Road. 6:30 p.m. Free. stickylipsbbq.com; mercedesescobar.com.
