Guy Davis is a master of both traditional and contemporary blues, and definitely worth checking out in concert. The good news is that he will be touring in Ontario this fall. Guy will be playing nine Ontario dates during the tour including Hugh’s Room in Toronto (October 3), The Acoustic Grill in Picton (October 7) and NEAT Bursntown Schoolhouse (October 12). As well as regular shows, he’ll also be be playing a Wellesley and District Lions Club fundraiser at the Wellesley Community Centre, 1000 Maple Street in Wellesley on October 8 at 7 p.m. Advance tickets for the fundraiser are $20 ($25 at the door). The proceeds will support the construction of an accessible playground in Wellesley. Advance tickets for the fundraiser can be purchased by e-mailing Peter van der Maas at [email protected]. Guy’s latest album, the fabulous “Juba Dance”, from 2013, features Fabrizio Poggi on harmonica, the Blind Boys of Alabama and Lea Gilmore.
