and well pretty to booth! 

Kansas City-based Samantha Fish has been on a major roll ever since she teamed up with Cassie Taylor and Dani Wilde on Ruf’s 2011 release, Girls with Guitars, and fueled by the trio’s Blues Caravan tour of Europe and the U.S., created an international buzz in the blues world.

I've been listening to her two albums, she is playing by me on June 5th, want to go see her, loving the sound and I'm in my 50's, she is a great talent and will soon skyrocket to the top. Writes, sings and plays a mean guitar, very rare these days. Thanks for this upload, going to stick it on my iPod and start listening.
