The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival stands as a radiant beacon of America's diverse musical scene. This multifaceted gathering represents an immersive journey across the musical map of America and beyond. Describing its innumerable treasures can prove daunting, as there is a veritable banquet of sound that is impossible to fully consume, let alone encapsulate in a single piece. But in attempting to relay the highlights of the 2023 festival's first weekend, one must reconcile with the abundance of excellence presented.

The 21st annual Blues From The Top Music Festival is officially in the music festival history books. What a great three days in the picturesque town of Winter Park, Colorado. You couldn’t have asked for better weather or grander hosts than the Grand County Blues Society and all of the sponsors that help year after year.

Samantha Fish is pleased to announce the upcoming Love Letters tour – a cross-country solo run inspired by the introspective Love Letters Documentary, first broadcast on PBS in May. The tour kicks off on September 12th in Solana Beach and will find Samantha performing songs from her entire catalog. Tapped by Eric Clapton himself, Fish will be a featured performer on Clapton’s Crossroads tour in Los Angeles on September 23 & 24.


Dynamic blues auteur Samantha Fish and guitarist extraordinaire Jesse Dayton release their anticipated collaboration, Death Wish Blues, on Rounder Records. The latest track is the gritty “Rippin’ and Runnin,’” a bold number full of swagger and bravado, featuring a twangy intro that quickly evolves into thumping riffs alongside gut-punching vocals.  Listen to the hard-hitting “Rippin’ and Runnin’” and to Death Wish Blues HERE.

If you have never been to the Blues From The Top Music Festival let me paint the picture for you. If you love music, being outside in the mountain air, great food and hospitality you probably need to be in Winter Park the last weekend of June. Your sensory system maybe be overwhelmed by the picturesque backdrop that surrounds the festival location.

Samantha Fish and her band just finished a four-day run in the Rocky Mountain state of Colorado. They played in the mountain towns of Beaver Creek and Grand Junction and the front range towns of Boulder and Fort Collins. Fish’s touring schedule is as ambitious as it is relentless.
