Female artist coming to blues festival

British female blues/roots guitar wiz Bex Marshall will perform at Sunbanks Lake Resort, Sept. 7, as part of the fall Blues Festival.

Marshall was recently nominated for “Best Album of the Year” and “Best Female Vocalist” at the British Blues Awards. She recently returned to the United States to support the release of her third album, “House of Mercy.”

The U.S. tour began Aug. 1 in Colorado Springs, and takes her throughout the country before returning Sept. 21 to Colorado.

On the new record, Marshall distinguishes herself as an accomplished songwriter crafting low-down blues, back-porchy bluegrass and soul-stirring gospel.

In 2004, she performed at the Fleadh Festival alongside the likes of Bob Dylan, the Counting Crows and John Prine.
