BLUES | Samantha Fish


Rochester got its first dose of guitarist Samantha Fish a couple of Jazz Festivals ago, when she was one of the wows in the triple-wow "Blues Caravan, Girls with Guitars" bill, along with Cassie Taylor and Dani Wilde. And though we could look beyond the visuals and get right down to the music, fans were blown away the trio's beautiful blues. Now performing on her own, Fish digs in deep into the very edge where blues and rock meet. Her duet with Devon Allman on Tom Petty's classic "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around" is a prime example. Fish's playing is brash and incendiary. Catch it on her newest platter, "Black Wind Howlin," or better yet see her live. Just make sure you hold onto something.

Samantha Fish plays Wednesday, March 26, at Dinosaur Bar-B-Que, 99 Court St. 9 p.m. Free. 325-7090,
