Carriage Towne News

---- — HAVERHILL, MA —Bluesman Guy Davis performs at the New Moon Coffeehouse on Sat., January 18 at 8:00 pm. The coffeehouse is located in the Unitarian Universalist Church, 16 Ashland St, Haverhill MA. Admission to the show is $20.00; $10.00 for those ages 18 and under. The gifted 23-year-old guitarist/singer/songwriter Shun Ng opens the show.

Guy Davis is a musician, composer, actor, director, and writer. But most importantly, he is a bluesman. The blues permeates every corner of Davis’ creativity. Throughout his career, he has dedicated himself to reviving the traditions of acoustic blues and bringing them to listeners everywhere. His music can be soulful, moaning out a people’s cry, or playful and bouncy as a hayride. He can tell you stories of his great-grandparents and his grandparents, they’re days as track linemen, and of their interactions with the infamous KKK. He can also tell you that as a child raised in middle-class New York suburbs, the only cotton he’s picked is his underwear up off the floor.

Shun Ng stands as one of the most innovative new performers, playing international festivals and winning accolades from some of the industry’s top names. Shun was recently named one of the Top 10 Acts in Boston by Improper Bostonian, and has just come back from LA after meeting with legend Quincy Jones, who said of him: “When you see Shun Ng, you won’t believe your eyes nor your ears -- he belies all stereotypes, all premonitions. I was simply blown away by both his soul and his science -- his creativity and his uniqueness is astounding.”

Come hear these fantastic musicians. Tickets for this show are available at the door starting around 6:30 p.m.; doors open at 7:30 p.m. Tickets may be reserved prior to the show by visiting www.newmooncoffeehouse.org, or by calling 978-459-5134.

The New Moon Coffeehouse is a nonprofit, an all-volunteer organization dedicated to supporting and enjoying the creative talents of acoustic performers.
