About The Show:
Suggested Donation: $20

We are excited to host a special show with Blues singer, musician, composer, teacher, activist Guy Davis during his short visit to Santa Barbara as part of the Santa Barbara Blues Society's "Blues for Youth" program for local schools. Guy has no other public performances in Santa Barbara. Come enjoy a private evening of blues and storytelling by a master of both.

Guy Davis:
Growing up in a family of artists (his parents were Ruby Dee and Ossie Davis), Guy fell under the spell of Blind Willie McTell and Fats Waller at an early age. Guy’s one‐man play, "The Adventures of Fishy Waters: In Bed With the Blues," premiered Off‐Broadway in the ‘90s and has since been released as a double CD.

About Our Series:
Cañon Concerts is pleased to invite exceptional indie musicians and troubadours to perform folk, blues and jazz in our comfortable venue. We open our home to musicians we might not otherwise hear and supportive guests in search of uncommon entertainment.

Our relaxed house concerts provide 1) outstanding musical talent, 2) delicious potluck dining and 3) the camaraderie of like-minded attendees. Where else can you enjoy a VIP pre-concert dinner plus onstage seating, all for a suggested donation and a potluck dish?

Potluck dinners are part of the event for our concerts, when guests and artists share a casual meal and conversation before we get down to music. Intermission is time for coffee, another bit of dessert and a chance to buy CDs. Then it's back to the 2nd set of music.

Our concert spaces seat 50 indoors with larger groups - up to 80 in good weather - outside. Indoors or out, everyone comes to experience outstanding music and artists who may be just a moment from stardom. ["Remember when we saw them before they got (more) famous?"] Come join us.
