The Monday night blues series continues Sept. 19 with the Girls with Guitars Ruf Records Blues Caravan Tour playing from 7 to 10 p.m. in the upstairs music room of Time Out Pub, 275 Main St. Admission is $15.

The name says it all: Girls with Guitars presents three of the scene’s hottest young female guitar slingers on a single stage. This year’s up-and-coming blues talents are Dani Wilde, Cassie Taylor and Samantha Fish. Hailing from Brighton, England, Wilde sings the blues with the old-school fervor of Aretha Franklin but also takes a cue from contemporaries like Duffy and Joss Stone. The singer/songwriter/guitarist has just released her second album, “Shine,” and has shared stages with luminaries like Robben Ford, Candye Kane and the late Koko Taylor.

At the tender age of 21, Fish is already a hot property on the live music scene in and around her hometown of Kansas City, Mo. She discovered the blues almost by accident as a teenager, but it has since become her singular mission in life. Her high-heeled, rock-edged performances have won her a loyal local following and carried her to venues like Rosa’s Lounge in Chicago, where she opened eyes during the 2010 Chicago Blues Festival.

Proud to call herself the Daughter of a Bluesman, multi-instrumentalist Taylor has appeared on eight critically-acclaimed albums by her father, Otis Taylor, and accompanied him on tours all over the world. She was a featured vocalist on Gary Moore’s 2008 release “Bad For You Baby.” Still just in her early 20s, Cassie has been hailed for her commanding stage presence and heavenly voice. Her music ranges from heart-wrenching ballads to hard-driving blues.

Up next in the Monday night series is the one and only Candye Kane Sept. 26 ($15).
