An Evening with Guy Davis
May 9 • 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm• Free - $15
Without the Blues, the U.S. —and the world — would have become a radically different place, possibly with a lot less soul. Guy Davis comes to Corvallis to perform and speak about his career as a blues guitarist, writer, actor and teacher. He’s dedicated his career to reviving acoustic blues by revisiting the work of the masters. In fact, he even portratyed the Delta Blues legend Robert Johnson in an off-Broadway play titled Robert Johnson: Trick the Devil. Davis has not only released 12 studio albums, but he’s built a career working with some of American popular music greats, as well. His discography includes work with Dr. John, Levon Helm of the Band and Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull. “An Evening With Guy Davis” is a part of Oregon State University College of Liberal Arts’ “American Strings Series,” which celebrates America’s history with stringed music and roots music. The night will be filled of performances from Davis as well as a conversation with the musician.
Guy Davis will appear at the Majestic Theatre, 115 SW 2nd Ave., Corvallis, 7:30 Wednesday, May 9. Tickets are $12 in advance, $15 at the door, and FREE for OSU students. — Henry Houston
