Few blues artists have performed in Canada more than Guy Davis. We estimate that over the past twenty years Guy Davis has been booked for more than 700 shows in all ten provinces and two territories, almost exclusively in theatres and at festivals other than repeat performances at The Dream Cafe. He returns for a show that will be completely new to western Canada in the fall of 2018, featuring one of the greatest blues harmonica players in the world, Fabrizio Poggi of Italy.
Guy’s most recent recording is an homage to Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee called Sonny & Brownie’s Last Train and prominently features Poggi on each track. The record has been getting fantastic reviews and is charting well all over the world. You can listen to it in its entirety here, on Spotify. This is Guy Davis proving once again that when it comes to acoustic blues, he is the real deal; Sonny & Brownie were probably the most lauded and influential acoustic blues duo of all time, and Davis is keeping their names and tradition alive long after each them boarded that last train.
This duo was nominated for a Grammy in 2018 for best traditional blues album.
