The Monday Night Blues series continues Nov. 7 with the return of Italian bluesman Roberto Morbioli, playing 7 to 10 p.m. in the upstairs music room of Time Out Pub, 275 Main St. Admission at the door will be $15.

Morbioli opened the 2015 North Atlantic Blues Festival and is, for the second year, nominated for Boston Music Awards’ International Artist of the Year. He is a passionate and commanding guitarist; as a singer, his powerful voice has been likened to Sam Cook, O.V. Wright, Little Milton, Otis Redding, Robert Cray and Donny Hathaway.

Touring with his own band, Morblus, has brought Morbioli much recognition and many awards; he writes and arranges the music and lyrics of all the original songs recorded by the band. As adept at electric as acoustic, the gifted and soulful singer/songwriter’s latest album, with his Roberto Morbioli Trio, is titled “Acoustic Me.”

Up next in the weekly series are: Nov. 14, Cedric Burnside Project ($15); Nov. 21, Funky Blu Roots ($10); Nov. 28, Paul Speidel Band featuring Toni Lynn Washington ($10) Dec. 5, Between Dead Stations fundraiser for trip to Memphis for the International Blues Challenge ($10 or more); and Dec. 12, season-closing party with Slam Alan Band ($15).
