Smoke curls around Christmas decorations still hanging in late January inside the Hide Out, a bar at the end of a Gladstone strip mall.
The high ceiling and exposed beams do little to muffle the din of phlegmy coughs and Miller High Life-flavored chatter on this frigid night. Still, about half the crowd is transfixed by the wholesome-looking young woman tearing into a cover of B.B. King’s “Something on Your Mind.” A red-faced man in a puffy Mizzou jacket stands and points directly at her, midsong. He yells, “She’s good!”
“I don’t know if I have necessarily carved out my own niche yet, but I’m starting to get a loyal fanbase,” Samantha Fish says on a Thursday afternoon in May at Hannibal’s Waldo Bar on Wornall Road, where she plays weekly blues jams. The sessions, which are often standing-room-only, are led by Fish and her bandmates, drummer Danny Montero and bassist Paul Greenlease.
In a genre where legends wail scorching melodies past the age of 80, the 21-year-old Fish is still a kid. But the bubbly, slender blonde, who has been playing guitar for six years, is taking the Kansas City blues scene by the balls. Fish’s sultry voice and rootsy, groove-oriented sound aren’t quite Delta, Chicago or KC in style but an amalgamation, with room for Tom Waits, Cedric Burnside and Lightnin’ Malcolm.
