Blues @ Boscobel
Join us for this first-ever gathering of celebrated blues artists under the Shakespeare Tent at Boscobel, a venue Hudson Valley Magazine readers voted as Best Of Hudson Valley for Outdoor Venue for Plays & Concerts!
Whether Guy Davis is appearing on Late Night With Conan O'Brien or nationally syndicated radio programs such as Garrison Keillor's, A Prairie Home Campanion, Mountain Stage or David Dye's, World Café or performing in front of 20,000 people at Madison Square Garden for Pete Seeger's 90th birthday celebration, Guy feels the instinctive desire to give each listener his all. And his "all" is the Blues.
Guy has released nine albums, received multiple Blues Music Award nominations and starred on Broadway in "Finian's Rainbow," as well as many other off-Broadway shows. He is the son of stage and screen legends Ruby Dee and the late Ossie Davis. His band includes Hudson Valley icon John Platania and respected bass player, Mark Murphy.

"Talent and charisma...Davis performs with authority."
-The New York Times
"Guy Davis makes his harmonica sound like a funky Stradivarius"
- Terry Teachout Wall Street Journal
"Davis' folksy and humble stage presence, combined with his humorous monologues, makes one feel that this is not a concert, but rather, an impromptu performance on a front porch down in some southern swamp. Indeed, at times Davis had the audience singing, clapping and stomping their feet."
-Daily Herald Tribune, Grand Prairie, Alberta
CHRISTINE OHLMAN & REBEL MONTEZ
Christine, known as the "rhythm-and-blues-shouting Beehive Queen" has sung lead vocals for the Saturday Night Live Band, has played the Rhythm & Blues Foundation Pioneer Awards, as well as Bob Dylan's 30th anniversary celebration at Madison Square Garden where she performed with Lou Reed, Neil Young, Johnny Cash and George Harrison. Her rich, deep contralto voice packs a belt favorably compared to Janis Joplin's.
Ohlman's latest release, "The Deep End," named to 4 national 2010 Top Ten lists, features duets with Dion, Marshall Crenshaw and Ian Hunter and special guests such as Levon Helm and Big Al Anderson.
