Roadhouse Concert IV - Guy Davis
Buddy & Sandy Cleveland are hosting their fourth house concert, Roadhouse Concert IV, featuring the multi-talented Bluesman and storyteller Guy Davis, at their home in Glenmoore, PA. The concert takes place on October 4, 2015.
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, in front of 15,000 people on the Main Stage of a major festival, or teaching an intimate gathering of students at a Music Camp, Guy feels the instinctive desire to give each listener his 'all'.
He's a musician, composer, actor, director, and writer. But most importantly, Guy Davis is a bluesman. The blues permeates every corner of Davis' creativity. Guy has performed around the world in just about every medium, including multiple Off Broadway productions. He's received numerous awards and nominations, including the Blues Foundation's "Keeping The Blues Alive" award in 1993. Throughout his career, he has dedicated himself to reviving the traditions of acoustic blues and bringing them to as many ears as possible through the material of the great blues masters, African American stories, and his own original songs, stories and performance pieces.
Guy can tell you stories of his great-grandparents and his grandparents, they're days as track linemen, and of their interactions with the infamous KKK. He can also tell you that as a child raised in middle-class New York suburbs with his parents Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee, the only cotton he's picked is his underwear up off the floor. The routes, and roots, of his blues are as diverse as the music form itself. It can be soulful, moaning out a people's cry, or playful and bouncy as a hay-ride. As one critic said of his music, "Davis never loses sight of the blues as good time music, the original forum for dancing on top of one's sorrows. Joy made more exquisite, of course, by the sorrow from which it springs."
This event will be an intimate, solo concert by one of today's most entertaining and important roots music artists. More information about Guy, including music samples and performance videos, is available at his web site: www.guydavis.com.
