Chicago's Guitar Goddess Shreds The Blues

"Instead of playing pure blues, like [Buddy] Guy or [Lonnie] Brooks, Connor's music slowly developed a hard-rock identity - her squealing lead-guitar licks recall the Allman Brothers, and her songs' deep-metal feeling comes straight from Cream."

1. At the Broad Street Blues Fest in Griffith, Indiana.


2. At some dude's barbecue in Norwood.


3. At the Lancaster (Pennsylvania) Roots and Blues Festival.


4. At the North Atlantic Blues Fest.


5. At Kingston Mines.

Chicago Blues Guide: "Chicago's guitar goddess has played around the world, recorded for multiple labels and backed up everyone from Jimmy Page and Buddy Guy to James Cotton and Junior Wells. Yet she remains humble, down-home and still not a household name."
