Wanda's Going To China.

This time next week, Blues Singer Wanda Johnson - from the South Carolina upstate - will be on her way to perform in Macau, China.

That's what they mean when they say "Talent will take you a long way."

Caught her and Shrimp City Slim (Gary Erwin) last night at A Dough Re Mi in Mt. Pleasant for several excellent sets and it's no wonder she's in demand around the world. Her Blues chops are finely tuned.

Sitting in with Shrimp's band was Dr. Pickup from Paris, France so it was a really international Friday night. The whole band will travel with Miss Wanda so it should be quite a show.

Last night the room was packed and, on one side, a happy crowd helped a fellow celebrate his birthday and, on the other side, a group of ladies also were eating pizza and birthday cake.
Tonight I'll be sitting down front at the Performing Arts Center in North Charleston for the Lucinda Williams concert. Last time she was here, it was packed-shoulder-to-shoulder at the Music Farm.
