He acts, he writes, he sings the blues. And for this special round of shows celebrating Black History Month, Guy Davis will get to do it all. Combining his knack for Delta-inspired blues that still ring with modern day vitality, with a storytelling savvy and maybe a nod or two to his regular work on Broadway (he currently stars in the revamped Finian's Rainbow), Davis should be able to give everyone in these audiences something on which to hang their hats. Remember how Mississippi John Hurt sang about the little fish and the big fish swimming in the water? Well, Davis is both.
