Guy Davis & the High Flying Rockets Perform Tonight!

Blues guitarist Guy Davis stops over on Hornby Island tonight to perform a concert for the Hornby Island Blues Society.

To say that Guy Davis is a guitarist is a major understatement, for the enormously talented bluesman is also a composer, actor, director and writer. He boasts a hefty discography and even longer list of performance credits, including live theatre, television, and radio. The U.S. based artist is mid-way through a western Canadian tour that with multiple dates booked throughout Alberta and British Columbia. His Canadian tour included a live taping of his Banff concert for an upcoming DVD release.

For tonight’s performance he’ll be appearing with Mark Murphy (bass), and Nerak Roth Patterson (electric guitar).

The concert is slated for 7:15 pm in order to accommodate blues enthusiasts traveling from nearby Denman Island by ferry.

The Hornby Island Blues Society runs an ongoing concert series, as well as a popular blues workshop camp in March.
