Of all the paths (actor, director, musician) he might have pursued in life, Guy Davis has dedicated himself to reviving and sharing the traditions of acoustic blues. Whether he is appearing on Late Night With Conan O'Brien, A Prairie Home Campanion, Mountain Stage, in front of 15,000 people at a festival, or teaching an intimate gathering of students, Guy gives his audience his "all." He combines classics of the genre (Skip James, Blind Willie McTell, Elizabeth Cotton) with African American stories, and his own original songs and performance pieces. Like the best of the old-time players, Guy is at heart a storyteller--a master of transporting his audience to a creaking front porch in a forgotten southern swamp as stomps his way through songs that range from soulful and moaning to playful and bouncy as a hay-ride. He accompanies himself on guitar, mandolin, banjo, and accordion.
