It's The Blues, but let's call it ALTERNATIVE BLUES!

More like a Bluesy/Rock style.

The award-winning duo of Samantha Fish & legendary singer, guitarist, and Austin Music Hall of Famer Jesse Dayton are coming to the Bear Trap Music Festival on Casper Mountain, on August 6th, 2023.

The first-ever collaborative album from Samantha Fish and Jesse Dayton, Death Wish Blues, came from their desire to push Blues Music to its limits.

Fish is a multi-award-winning festival headliner with a very distinct Blues/Rock style.

Dayton has recorded with Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings, toured as a guitarist for seminal punk band X, worked with Rob Zombie on the soundtracks for his iconic horror films, and released a series of acclaimed solo albums.

Their album, Death Wish Blues, marked the culmination of a musical connection forged in her hometown of Kansas City over a decade ago.

“It was always a big deal when Jesse came through town to a play a show—we first met when I was 20, and I kept up with him through the years,” Fish says of the Beaumont, Texas-bred musician. “I’d been wanting to do a collaborative project for a while and went to see Jesse perform in New Orleans, and right away I knew he was the guy. We got together and had this vision of making something of an alt-blues record, but it turned out to be so much more exciting and layered than I ever imagined.”

In this next video, you might enjoy their conversational style in the lyrics.

Plus, those guitar rifts are killer.

You can hear them perform from this album this Sunday, August 5th, 2023, at the Bear Trap Music Festival.

Food, music, bounce houses for the kids, and so much more going on.
