Samantha Fish/Blues Chronicles

When: Thu., Aug. 27, 8 p.m. 2015

Straight outta Kansas City, Samantha Fish has been making a nice dent in the roots rock and blues touring circuits. Her third album, Wild Heart, dropped just last month. Opening with the slide-riding, riff-rocking “Roadrunner,” the album tosses another exclamation point on Fish’s budding career. From there, tunes like “Highway’s Holding Me Now” continue to showcase Fish’s knack for winding up and down the neck and flexing bluesy licks over chugging percussion. There’s a lot of rock ‘n’ roll coursing through Fish’s veins, but her songwriting chops remain entrenched in the classic approaches to blues music. “I fell in love with it,” she told Premier Guitar of her dive into the blues, “and started doing my homework by listening to the old guys like Son House and Skip James.” (Sandy)
