Bluesman Guy Davis stands as one of the seminal figures in the modern blues scene. The son of actors and activists Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee, Davis has become a regular figure at Common Ground on the Hill's concert series over the years. Davis recently was awarded the W.C. Handy Keeping the Blues Alive Award. At the concert, Davis will perform music from his most recent album, Juba Dance, which was nominated for the 2014 Blues Music Association Acoustic Album of the year, and remained at number one on the blues sales charts for more than a month. Davis has appeared on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien," "A Prairie Home Companion" and the Kennedy Center Awards.
