The Powerhouse Pub has brought Folsom an array of top acts over the years. Its intimate setting offers a down home feel and leaves no room for ego while intimate stage gives fans a rare opportunity to see artists up close and personal.

On Thursday, Nov. 15, superstar Juice Newton will raise the bar for upcoming acts.

Grammy, ACM and Billboard Award winner, Newton rose to fame in 1981 with her cross-over hit single, “Angel of the Morning.” The single set the tone for her successful music career. Follow up songs, “Break It to Me Gently,” “The Sweetest Thing (I’ve Ever Known)” and “Queen of Hearts” all scored on both the Country and Pop charts. This was a rare feat at the time. This allowed her to develop a wide fan base that led to multiple gold and platinum albums exceeding sales of over 10 million collectively.

Newton has always had a clear connection with her music.

“I always see singing as a painting project. It’s very visual for me. The story of the song unfolds before my eyes while I sing,” she said in a press release.

Newton’s music has remained recognizable and continues to receive airplay nearly three decades after her last top 10 hit.
