Last February I saw Bronx blues artist Guy Davis, the 63-year-old son of famous actors and civil rights activists Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee, perform a concert on his home turf at Hostos Community College on the Grand Concourse. I’m a big fan and was interested in learning more about his work so I interviewed him at Capitol, a Kingsbridge Road diner. That led to my front-page story about the blues singer-songwriter, and harmonica, guitar and banjo player, for Living Blues Magazine

Here’s a video to get you goin’. It’s “Can’t Be Satisfied” and you won’t be satisfied until you see Davis live.

Guy Davis in the Bronx Tonight!

27 Feb

If you’ve got some free time tonight, don’t miss blues musician — guitar, banjo, harmonica — Guy Davis at Hostos Community College (E. 149th St. and Grand Concourse – 4 train virtually leads right to the door) tonight at 7:30. It’s only $10, so if you’re into him or blues in general, try and make it there. (I’m not a promoter, just a Davis fan and blues love. Check out this wonderful video where Davis explains how he took up his work.)
