Guy Davis 

When: Fri., May 8, 8:30 p.m. 2015
Price: $20
Dextrous and evocative, Guy Davis has been writing and recording important blues records for decades, merging styles and traditions throughout. His 2012 album, The Adventures of Fishy Waters: In Bed with the Blues, takes the listener on a journey across fields and highways as only the blues can. On the album, short songs (“Miss Ripley’s Catfish Stew”) split the narrative with longer explorations (“Fishy Leaves Home”) and even spoken-word illustrations (“The Lynching”). He’s said his music has been inspired by his southern grandmother’s way of speaking. Through her stories, the Deep South became a vivid land of larger-than-life characters and mythos. The blues, Davis has said, is a natural conduit for sharing those stories. (Sandy)
