“… one of the most gifted acoustic musicians on the planet” Blues Blast Magazine.
Multi instrumentalist from the USA, Guy Davis is a two-time, back-to-back Grammy nominee for Best Traditional Blues. 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, and Taj Mahal, opening for Chuck Berry, Joan Armatrading, and BB King, and perform all over the globe. His 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.
