The best concerts of 2015

Here you have it folks! Here's Wildfire Reviews best concerts of 2015.

1) Samantha Fish-January 31st, Center of the Arts, Homer, NY
For those who appreciate live music, there's nothing like seeing a Samantha Fish concert. The 25 year old musician is the best live act you can see in the music industry today.

2) Norah Jones
Ithaca State Theater, Ithaca, NY
With an encore that included no microphones, Norah Jones proves she has one of the best vocals in the music business when she performed at the State Theater in Ithaca, NY. The concert wasn't just one of the best of the year, but one of the best of recent memory.

3) Driftwood

Westcott Theater, Syracuse, NY December 2015
Local band Driftwood proved they have the entire world on their shoulders as they delivered an awe inspiring performance at the Westcott.

4) Jonny Lang

Paper Mill Island-Bville, NY Summer 2015
With a perfect venue, Jonny Lang delivered the blues on a perfect summer evening to the Paper Mill Island. The show was one of the best of the year, and the guitarist nailed his hit song 'Lie to Me'.

5) Lindsey Stirling
Landmark Theater-Late Spring 2015
There are concerts, and there is Lindsey Stirling live. The violinist and dancer puts on an incredible performance that's worth going for just to see the many outfits she changes into.

6) Lake Street Dive

Jazzfest-Syracuse, NY Summer 2015
Lake Street Dive proved they were the best at this year's jazzfest. With energy and soul to match it, the up and coming indie jazz group is a sight to see and hear live.

7) The Avett Brothers/Shakey Graves/Mama Bear
 CMAC-Summer 2015
Wherever the Avett Brothers go, greatness awaits. This summer was no different as they once again provided the best concert of the year with CMAC with endless amounts of energy.

8) Santana-CMAC
Late Summer 2015
The legendary guitarist rocked CMAC this summer for a sold out show. It was well worth going to as he still is incredible on guitar.

9) Hank Williams JR

NY State Fair
As a tribute to a goodbye to the Grandstand, Hank Williams JR put on one hell of a show. The fans end everyone there loved the performance.

10) Whitey Morgan & the 78s-The Lost Horizon

Syracuse, NY Fall 2015
 Who would have guessed the Lost Horizon be represented on this list? As it turns out, the venue was a perfect place for Whitey Morgan who performed for a two hour plus set that included some rare songs he hadn't played in several years.
