Samantha Fish
Nominated in the Best New Artist category in the recently announced Blues Music Awards, Samantha Fish has two local shows. The 22-year-old guitarist appears at Lincoln’s Zoo Bar Wednesday, Dec. 28, 6-9 p.m. and at The 21st Saloon Thursday, Dec. 29, 5:30-8:30 p.m. Premier Guitar magazine writes that “by all signs, she seems poised to become a key figure in modern blues.” Fish made a guest appearance when Mike Zito played The 21st a couple months back and she definitely showed she’s got guitar skills and a fine voice. She is from nearby Kansas City but has already made a national impression as part of Ruf Records’ Girls with Guitars compilation CD. She’s touring in support of her debut CD Runaway, produced by Zito. See samanthafish.com.

Hadden Sayers
Hoodoo favorite Hadden Sayers returns for two local shows. Sayers has been touring hard behind his disc Hard Dollar, a track on the excellent disc was just recognized with a Blues Music Award Nomination for Song of the Year. Sayers plugs in at Lincoln’s Zoo Bar Wednesday, Jan. 4, and plays The 21st Saloon Thursday, Jan. 5. See haddensayers.com and 8 Days.
