The cold weather reminds us that even though this is the holiday season, the emotions stirred aren't always happy ones. A good shot of the blues is in order (now or any other time of year), and a visit to Cozy's on Friday would do a body - and a soul - good.

Guitarist and singer Laurie Morvan has quietly built an impressive local blues profile over the past few years. She's got a particularly strong current album, Cures What Ails Ya (Screaming Lizard) that contains some soul-searching original material, amid the fast shuffles and hot guitar. "Family Line" is as genuine a blues lament as has been heard in a long time. This woman has something special.
