The Pearl Street Warehouse has a tradition of great blues shows. In November, they hosted hill country bluesman Cedric Burnside, a 2019 Grammy nominee for Best Traditional Blues Album, and ZZ Top frontman Billy Gibbons, touring in support of a solo blues-rock project. Last June, Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Booker T. Jones, famous for his blues classics, stopped by.
Continuing this tradition, critically-acclaimed blues musician Danielle Nicole and her band took over the Pearl Street Warehouse Sunday evening.

Somewhere on the hallowed ground between Etta James and Janis Joplin, Stevie Ray Vaughn and Robert Johnson, Samantha Fish is staking out her own territory. This sassy-sweet guitar slinger with a voice that both purrs and growls continues to make the claim that she stands with giants, as well. A packed, standing-room Monday night crowd at The Birchmere would no doubt agree.
