“… one of the most gifted acoustic musicians on the planet” Blues Blast Magazine.

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 Water, Howlin’ Wolf, and Bob Dylan.

Guy is great! The real-deal! Interestingly, he is the son of American actors and civil-rights activists, Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee, and is also an actor himself having played the lead-role in Beat Street (1984), which almost single-handedly introduced Europe to break-dancing and hip hop.

“…a superb songwriter whose lyrics evoke the storytelling poetic tradition of the blues” The Country Blues Magazine
