Blues Great Guy Davis Performs At Eutaw Place

Blues musician Guy Davis will perform on Saturday night, February 1, 2014 at Eutaw Place. Doors open at 7:30 pm.

Davis grew up in NYC hearing accounts of life in the rural south from his parents and especially his grandparents, and they made their way into his own stories and songs. He taught himself the guitar and learned by listening to and watching other musicians.

Davis has performed in several Broadway and Off-Broadway productions. His musical influences include Blind Willie McTell, Skip James, Manse Lipscomb, Mississippi John Hurt, Elizabeth Cotton, and Buddy Guy, among others.  It was through Taj Mahal that he found his way to the old time blues. His writing and storytelling have been influenced by Zora Neale Hurston, Garrison Keillor, and the late Laura Davis (his one hundred and five year-old grandmother).

His album “Legacy” was picked as one of the Best CDs of the Year by National Public Radio (NPR), and the lead track on it, “Uncle Tom’s Dead” was chosen as one of the Best Songs of the Year.  However, easily the proudest recording project he’s been involved with is the one produced by his friend Larry Long, called “I Will Be Your Friend: Songs and Activities for Young Peacemakers”, in which Guy contributes the title track. It’s a CD collection of songs together with a teacher’s aide kit to help teach diversity and understanding, part of the national “Teaching Tolerance” (www.tolerance.org) campaign distributed by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Guy’s new album, Juba dance, is now out in North America and climbed to #3 on the Roots Music Charts in September.

This concert is sponsored by B Bistro of Bolton Hill. At Eutaw Place, patrons can enjoy beer and wine supplied by Vineyards Elite, coffee by Baltimore’s High Grounds Coffee Roasters, and home baked cookies and other snacks. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased in advance online or at the door.

Located in the lower level of the historic Beth Am Synagogue in Baltimore’s Reservoir Hill neighborhood, Eutaw Place brings to Baltimore musicians at an affordable ticket price, in a comfortable atmosphere. Eutaw Place is located at 2501 Eutaw Place. There is free parking in the lot behind the Esplanade Apartments off of Eutaw Place. Additional information can be found at eutawplace.org.
