Marina Orlova, my favorite philologist
Beth and I drove to Kansas City on Monday, August 27th for a John Hiatt concert. The opening act was a very pretty lady named Samantha Fish.
Her voice had nuances of Bonnie Raitt and Gus Hardin, and when she sang softly, Norah Jones. No mistake, she has her own, very distinctive, voice, without borrowing anything from anybody else.
I looked for the guitar player for a second, then realized she was the only guitar player on stage. Samantha could walk onstage with Jeff Beck or Eric Clapton or Jimmy Page and
trade licks with them without a minute of rehearsal. Both her singing and playing are fully world-class, fully developed and inspired.
When you add them together, all coming from this one young lady, the result is overwhelming. Her website says she has been playing guitar for about seven years.
There's no other rational conclusion: Samantha is a miracle. I want to get her to Tulsa as soon as possible. Samantha has lots of songs on Youtube. Treat yourself!
