In advance of her performance at the Britt Festivals in Jacksonville Friday night, Southern Oregon blues vocalist Karen Lovely will take part in an online Q&A session at mailtribune.com Friday morning.

The half-hour online session with Lovely is set from 10:30 to 11 a.m. at www.mailtribune.com/britt. Readers can connect to the session and ask their questions of the Ashland singer. They also can send in questions in advance to jwurth@mailtribune.com.

Lovely's star has been rising this summer since her band took first place in July at the annual Waterfront Blues Festival in Portland, guaranteeing the group a slot at the International Blues Challenge in January in Memphis, Tenn.

She and the band open at Friday's Creedence Clearwater Revisited concert in Jacksonville. Tickets are still available for the 7:30 p.m. concert.
