Blind John Davis biography



Blind John Davis (December 7, 1913 — October 12, 1985) After playing on various earlier recording sessions with him, in the 1940s Davis teamed up with Lonnie Johnson. He toured Europe with Broonzy in 1952, the first blues pianist to do so. In later years Davis toured and recorded frequently in Europe, where he enjoyed a higher profile than in his homeland. Davis died in his adopted home town of Chicago, at the age of 71, in October 1985.
