Guy Davis once said, “I like antiques and old things, old places, that still have the dust of those who’ve gone before us lying upon them.” Blowing that dust off just enough to see its beauty is something Guy has excelled at for more than 20 years of songwriting and performing. It’s no wonder his reverence for the music of the blues masters who’ve gone before him has been evident in every album he’s ever recorded or concert he’s given.
Guy returns to the Towne Crier with his Italian harmonica-playing friend Fabrizio Poggi to celebrate the release of their new album, "Sonny & Brownie's Last Train" (Smokeydoke / M.C. Records), an homage to the legendary blues musicians, Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee. Recorded in Milan last summer, the album, and this concert, will feature songs by Sonny and Brownie, as well as songs they were known to perform and record.
"This will be a very special night for me, performing the songs of these masters in the home town of my old friend Pete Seeger, who not only was friends with Sonny and Brownie, and played many times together, but Pete turned me on to these wonderful men,” says Guy. “I hope all of my Clearwater family friends will come out and celebrate with us."
