Live Friday, May 11th at 3pm: Samantha Fish

May 4, 2018

“You should always get outside of the box,” Samantha Fish says while discussing her boundary-breaking new album Belle of the West. “Challenging yourself is how you grow.” And that's just what she's done, with that and her earlier 2017 release that we also love, Chills and Fever. We're delighted she can come to Studio B for her first visit, en route to LEAF in Black Mountain!

These four local greats are putting together an evening of songs for and about mama at Isis in West Asheville  on Mother's Day (6pm & 8pm). Tell mom to tune in!
