“The Routes and Roots of the Blues” All-Ages Kids' Program with Guy Davis
Grand Marais Public Library, 104 2nd Ave. West
Sat. June 6 from 1 to 2 PM
FREE EVENT, open to the public
Kids of all ages and their grownups are invited to a free musical program at the Grand Marais Public Library on SAT. June 5, from 1 to 2 PM. Co-sponsored by the North Shore Music Association and the Grand Marais Public Library, this event, featuring WORLD-RENOWNED ACOUSTIC BLUES MUSICIAN GUY DAVIS, will be a fun, playful, musically and culturally enriching time for all.
An enthused participant of Guy Davis’s youth program at the Broward County Library, FL, writes, “Blues School was in session again with world famous blues artist Guy Davis at the African-American Research and Cultural Center. Davis made his harmonica bark like a dog and grunt like a pig and rattle like a train. He lined up a group of volunteers on the edge of the stage and taught them how to swing an ax in the kind of rhythm that fuels the blues. On his guitar, he demonstrated different picking styles—from Delta style to Piedmont style. And he played ‘Shortnin’ Bread’ on his banjo like nobody’s business.”
According to Arts at Penn, Guy Davis has “some Blind Willie and some Fats Waller, some Zora Neale Hurston, some Taj Mahal, and some Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee (his parents). He's a musician, composer, actor, director and writer. But most importantly—Guy Davis is a bluesman who's ready to enlighten young people with the vibrant storytelling kind-of-music that's deeply rooted in American culture."

Then come hear him live in concert at the Arrowhead Center for the Arts right here in Grand Marais. Don't miss your chance to hear this internationally acclaimed traditional blues artist! One night only.
“Like the best early bluesmen, Guy Davis is, at heart, a storyteller. A master at setting intimate, richly nuanced tales to stomping acoustic blues backing, often with folky accompaniment from mandolin, banjo, and accordion, he helped revitalize the state of country blues in the 1990s with a string of critically acclaimed albums for Red House Records.” - Blues Revue
