The Blues Series
Kansas City-based Samantha Fish has been on a major roll ever since she teamed up with Cassie Taylor and Dani Wilde on Ruf's 2011 release, Girls with Guitars, and fueled by the trio's Blues Caravan tour of Europe and the U.S., created an international buzz in the blues world. Later that same year she recorded Runaway, her solo debut on Ruf, which mixed gutsy riff-blues rockers like "Down In The Swamp" with the mellow small-hours jazz of "Feelin' Alright," while marinating her songwriting in the groove of the Rolling Stones and even tipping a hat to Heart. Earlier this year Samantha joined label mate Devon Allman for a sultry duet of the Tom Petty classic, "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around," that appeared on Devon's Turquoise CD and accompanying video.
Hitting a receptive international blues and rock press, Runaway was hailed as a thrilling opening statement, earning a string of rave reviews and radio airplay, climaxed by her winning the Blues Music Award (BMA) for "Best New Artist Debut" in 2012.
Now, the wait is over, as Samantha Fish unleashes a major storm of her trademark guitar work and soulful vocals on Black Wind Howlin'. No "sophomore slump" here, as Black Wind Howlin' leaps from the speakers with 12 smoking tracks that chart Samantha's evolution as songwriter, gunslinger and lyricist.
Ticket prices starting at $15. Must be 21 or older to attend.
