Guy Davis In Concert (2018 Grammy Nominated Blues Guitarist)

Tuesday, May 29, 7:30 pm at Oil City High School Auditorium, 7 Lynch Boulevard.  Guy Davis has spent his musical life carrying his message of the blues around the world, from the Equator to the Arctic Circle, earning him the title “An Ambassador of the Blues”.  His parallel careers– as a musician, an author, a music teacher and a film, television and Broadway actor—mark Davis as a Renaissance man, yet the blues remain his first and greatest love.  This special performance is free and open to the public, presented by the Oil City Arts Council in memory of Bob and Marilyn Flath.  For more information call (814) 678-3017.
