Of all the paths he might have pursued in life, Guy Davis has dedicated himself to reviving and sharing the traditions of acoustic blues. His shows and numerous albums combine classics of the genre with African-American stories, and his own original songs and performance pieces. Like the best of the old-time players, Guy is at heart a storyteller--a master of transporting his audience to a creaking front porch in a forgotten southern swamp. He stomps his way through songs that range in sound from soulful moaning to playful rhythms. He accompanies his verse with guitar, mandolin, banjo and accordion.
