"he’s America’s greatest link to the blues right now.” - Windsor Star Guy Davis’ work as an actor, author, and lately teacher earmark him as a renaissance man of the blues. What music and acting have in common, he explains, “is that I don’t like people to see the hard work and the sweat that goes into what I do. I want them to hear me and be uplifted. And I want some little eight-year-old kid in the front row to have big eyes and say, ‘Hey, I want to do that!’.” Guy Davis Tour October 29 Staf Versluys Bredene, Belgium 30 Carte Postale Geel, Belgium 31 Ripspique Lier, Belgium November 1 TBA Laken, Belgium 7 Riverside Church Bronx, NY 7 Music @ the Mansion Rye Brook, NY 8 University Cafe Stonybrook, NY 11 Beggar’s Banquet Richardson, TX 12 Mucky Duck Houston, TX 13 Baron’s Creekside Fredericksburg, TX 14 Sam's Burger Joint (Robert Johnson Fest) San Antonio, TX 20 Pearl Theatre Lunenberg, NS Canada 23 The Carleton Halifax, NS 26 Plan B Lounge Moncton, Canada 27 Membertou Trade Center Sydney, NS Canada 29 Russian Tour (through December 13)
