Kristine Jackson, Cleveland’s award-winning blues musician, uses her rough childhood as inspiration, channeling the emotions trapped inside her into her music. The result is a strong, soulful vocal style that has made the Elyria native a popular addition to the city’s music scene. You can catch Jackson tonight at Brews & Blues, the weekly musical interlude at Great Lakes Brewing Company, where she performs twice a month. Of course, GLBC’s lineup of craft brews doesn’t hurt. Neither does the brewpub’s new happy hour menu: From 4 to 7 p.m., you’ll find $6 burgers and a dollar off pints and wines by the glass. Jackson performs from 6 to 9 p.m. There’s no cover.
