GUY DAVIS & FABRIZIO POGGI – The Last Train Tour 2017

November 24 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm

£15.00

 

International bluesmen Guy Davis (USA) and Fabrizio Poggi (IT) will be playing at Quay Arts, Newport, IOW on Friday 24th November 2017 from 7.30pm as part of their “Last Train Tour 2017”.

Rediscover the genius of blues masters Brownie McGhee and Sonny Terry, as Guy Davis and Fabrizio Poggi bring you an evening inspired by these two musical greats.

Heavily influenced by the storytelling style and harmonica technique of Sonny Terry, Guy Davis has spent his career carrying his message of the blues around the world,

From the Equator to the Arctic Circle, earning him the moniker ‘Ambassador of the blues’.

Guy’s new album, “Sonny & Brownie’s Last Train – A Look Back at Brownie McGhee and Sonny Terry” is a homage to these two hugely influential artists, not only on Guy’s career, but to thousands of musicians around the world. One such artist is the Italian harmonica ace, Fabrizio Poggi, who collaborates with and produced this recording.

Teaming up with award-winning Italian harmonica ace Fabrizio Poggi, this is an exciting opportunity to see two expert musicians perform music that really sparks their passion.

Get swept up in great music of the past spun afresh by two of today’s most talented performers.

 

“Guy Davis; he’s straight out of New York, and he’s America’s greatest link to the blues right now.” – Windsor Star, Canada

 

“Fabrizio Poggi is a terrific Italian harmonica player” – Dan Ackroyd, The Blues Brothers

 

Support comes from ‘Red Sqwrl’. Indigenous to the Island, Red Sqwrl are a Country Blues string band with a laid back Café Orchestra style who perform traditional and original

material steeped in the music from the era of jug-bands, Memphis Minnie, the ragtime & blues of Blind Boy Fuller, Fred McDowell and others.

 

Tickets £14 advance, £15 on the door.
