About this event
Guy Davis will be on stage at Shrewsbury Abbey on Thursday, November 2nd at 7.30pm - Tickets £18.
Described as 'one of the most gifted acoustic musicians on the planet', multi-instrumentalist Guy is a two-time, back to back Grammy nominee for Best Traditional Blues. He uses a blend of Roots, Blues, Folk, Rock, Rap, Spoken Word, and World Music to comment on and address the frustrations of social injustice, touching on historical events, and common life struggles.
Equally at ease with six or twelve string guitar, five string banjo, harmonica, and even the didgeridoo, Guy’s work has seen him perform alongside Pete Seeger, Bruce Springsteen, Dr John, Taj Mahal and Joss Stone, opening for Chuck Berry, Joan Armatrading, and BB King, and perform all over the globe.
His shows feature a mixture of his own original material alongside classic cover songs from such luminaries as Muddy Water, Howlin’ Wolf, and Bob Dylan, and he is available to perform either solo or as a trio.
