FOLK | Samantha Crain 

 

Folk singers are a dime a dozen but Samantha Crain has a certain quality that makes her a cut above the rest. I wouldn't call her a throwback, but I imagine she would have fallen in with the Topanga Canyon crowd.  At least Crain's tune "For the Miner" has a classic "Down by the River" vibe. The Oklahoma-based singer-songwriter cites Neil Young as an influence and her sound carries a western aura that's both stark and lush at the same time — if that makes any sense. Either way, Crain's literate music has recently perked the ears of Rolling Stone, NPR, and The New York Times. Crain is touring in support of brand new album, "Under Branch & Thorn & Tree."

Samantha Crain performs on Wednesday, July 22, at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Avenue. 9 p.m. $8-$10. bugjar.com; samanthacrain.com.
