Vocal powerhouse and songwriting talent Shana Morrison and her band Caledonia will return to The Palms Playhouse on Saturday for another great evening of R&B, pop, rock, blues and more. Tickets for the 8 p.m. show are $20.

Morrison sings a smart brand of pop music that includes a broad range of influences such as blues, R&B, country, rock and jazz. While the bulk of her performances showcase her own diverse and mature songwriting talents, Morrison is also likely to throw in a few choice cover tunes by such greats as John Lee Hooker, Bill Withers or papa Van Morrison.

Her songs are both lyrically interesting and catchy and accessible musically, with all her material pinned down by her strong and emotionally varied voice.

“Morrison’s vocal abilities encompass a mosaic of interests and influences, and her country and rhythm and blues inflections in particular make one mindful of such early West Coast discoveries as the pre-mega fame Janis Joplin,” wrote Common Ground. “With a thoroughbred voice, Shana Morrison can wail with the best of them.”

The Palms is at 13 Main St. in downtown Winters. Tickets are available at Armadillo Music in Davis, Watermelon Music in Woodland, Pacific Ace Hardware in Winters or at the door if not sold out.
