The weekly Monday night blues series at Time Out Pub, 275 Main St., will continue Oct. 11 with JoAnne Shaw Taylor. The music will run from 7 to 10 p.m. in the upstairs music room; admission is $15 at the door.

This British-born musician shares a few other attributes that do not come immediately to mind when one thinks blues guitarist, but she has played with all sorts of blues musicians all over the world and made a film, “Deep Blues,” that involved traveling to Mississippi and recording with legendary players R.L Burnside and Jesse-Mae Hemphill.

When she was still a teen, Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics asked her to join his supergroup D.U.P. on a European tour. Now in her 20s, Taylor has finally released her recording debut and it was worth the wait. For “White Sugar,” Taylor flew to Memphis and discovered the joys of the power trio. The resulting CD features 10 Taylor-written tunes — funky shuffles, soulful ballads and burning instrumentals.

Upcoming performers in the Monday night series are Deb Callahan, Oct. 18 ($10); and James Armstrong, Oct. 25 ($10, Halloween party). Schedule is subject to change.
