One of the Sault's sweetest songstresses will be performing this Friday at the Downbeat Lounge.

Catherine Taddo takes the stage on Friday, March 24, at 10:30 p.m. and there is no cover charge.

Her style has been described as ballsy blues, her voice as a velvet blanket and she is a seasoned performer.

She'll be joined on stage by Lindsay Pugh.

The title track off Taddo's CD, This Way is also used in Lucidia's radio commercial for Community First Bank and it's currently playing on the Bear.

Taddo says she is also really excited about her chance to catch the Juno's next week so go see her at the Downbeat and tell her to have fun in Halifax.

If you haven't got a copy of Taddo's CD, yet, you can now order it from Music and Film in Motion's new distribution website, ThinkNorth.

From her bio at her official websitewebsite:

****************
Taddo released her first EP in 2001, and more recently her first full length album in 2005.

The newest release This Way is a compilation of 10 tracks rooted in folk and blues.

Taddo is inspired by the passion of the blues, and by artists such as Junior Wells, Susan Tedeschi and others who helped her reach deep into her heart to connect with her own soulful voice.

Her unique vocal stylings are a mix of ballsy straight out blues and soft edged velvet emotion.

Put together with Catherine's direct and conversational songwriting style, it's a heady mix of blues and folk traditions.
