Fish returns to Lobster Capital

Mar 12, 2014

Rockland — The weekly blues series continues March 24 with a 7 p.m. show by Samantha Fish. Admission at the door will be $15.

Fish, who wowed the North Atlantic Blues Festival crowd last summer, won the 2012 Blues Music Award for Best New Artist Debut (“Runaway”) and has been on the road ever since, playing festivals, clubs and wining legions of fans around the country, around the world and on the seas as a Legendary Rhythm & Blues Cruise performer.

The 20-something singer/guitarist first discovered the blues and started paying her dues in Kansas City, a stew of musical styles from sharp-edged, riff-driven blues, breakneck boogies and smoky, late-night jazz to hints of the sultry ‘70s hard rock of Ann and Nancy Wilson and the 4/4 ruggedness of the Rolling Stones. Throughout, Fish demonstrates astonishing range and depth as a songwriter.

Upcoming in the weekly series are: March 31, Toni Lynn Washington ($10); April 7, Pat O’Shea Band ($10); April 14, Studebaker John ($10); April 21, Johnny Rawls ($10); and April 28, Harper ($15).
