Guy Davis

Tuesday 14th November

Multi-instrumentalist Guy Davis is a two-time, back-to-back Grammy nominee for Best Traditional Blues, musician, actor, author, songwriter, so much more than ‘just a bluesman’, a troubadour of the folk tradition, and a master of his craft.

 

Guy uses a blend of roots, blues, folk, rock, rap, spoken word and world music to comment on and address the frustrations of social injustice, touching on historical events, and common life struggles.

Equally at ease with six or twelve string guitar, five string banjo, harmonica and even the didgeridoo, Guy’s work has seen him perform alongside Pete Seeger, Bruce Springsteen, Dr John, Taj Mahal and Joss Stone, opening for Chuck Berry, Joan Armatrading and BB King, and perform all over the globe. Adventures that once saw him chased out of Red Square in Moscow for trying to sing, performing in the then Soviet-occupied East Berlin, and in front of an iceberg in Greenland!

His shows feature a mixture of his own original material alongside classic cover songs from such luminaries as Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf and Bob Dylan.
