Powerful performer

DuPage County native Cathy Richardson is a magnetic presence onstage. Her husky, powerhouse singing voice has won her fans, and jobs, from coast to coast. She's performed as the legendary Janis Joplin in the stage musical "Love, Janis," fronted Jefferson Starship and more. But she's probably most well-known in these parts for leading the Cathy Richardson Band, which delivers a rootsy and witty brand of guitar rock. The band performs in the city this weekend. 8 p.m. Friday, May 16, at City Winery, 1200 W. Randolph St., Chicago. Tickets start at $18. Go to citywinery.com.
