EARLVILLE – In a special performance geared toward children and families, bluesman Guy Davis will take to the stage at 7 p.m. tonight at the Earlville Opera House, 18 East Main Street in Earlville.
Davis has done residencies teaching about blues music to children both in the United States and abroad - including programs at schools, colleges, and arts centers. He has been a part of several television projects aimed for children, including Jack’s Big Music Show on Nick Jr.
Davis, a self-taught guitarist hailing from the New York City area, not only plays the blues - he is also a composer, director, actor and writer. Davis stated he never had the patience to take formal guitar lessons, and instead learned the craft by listening to and watching other musicians. His interest in acting led him to the lead role in the film “Beat Street,” and on television as Dr. Josh Hall on “One Life to Live.”
