Veteran bluesman will perform at Little Dan’s
LEWISTON — Morgan Davis has taken his blend of country blues and contemporary songs full of wit and humor on the road across Canada, the United States and Europe for nearly four decades.
Thursday, June 18, he will play at Little Dan’s BBQ on Main Street, starting at 6:30 p.m. There is no cover.
Over the years, Davis toured with the Rhythm Rockets, The Knights of The Mystic Sea, and David Wilcox’s first band — and eventually formed his own trio. He has opened for Willie Dixon, John Lee Hooker, Albert King, John Hammond, Albert Collins and Eric Bibb. He also backed Dr. John.
Davis’ songwriting talents reached international recognition with Colin James covering his ballad “Why’d You Lie.”
His first solo recording, “Blues Medicine,” won rave reviews as well as awards for songwriting and production. His multi-award winning release “Painkiller” won four awards at the 2004 Maple Blues Awards and Canada’s top music award, the Juno, for Blues Album of the Year.
