How to follow Van Morrison and close the Saturday night? Easy - Sharrie Williams with her powerful gospel, jazzy R&B and blues from the heart. The band kicked things off with an instrumental before Sharrie joined the band for a high energy set of blues based material. Songs included in this very enjoyable set were Fire In My Veins, Song About Jealousy, Just You and Me and Iím Here to Stay. A good end to Saturday night with a tight band providing solid support for a great singer. Awesome!!
