The Sault Blues Society presents Morgan Davis at Waterfront Legend
Morgan Davis

The Sault Blues Society is pleased to host bluesman Morgan Davis on Friday, May 13 at Waterfront Legend (formerly Docks Riverfront Grill).

Born and raised in Detroit, Davis relocated with his family to Toronto in 1968 before moving to Halifax in 2001.

Growing up listening to the music of Jimmy Reed, Ike and Tina Turner, Fats Domino and Chuck Berry, he released his debut recording I'm Ready To Play! in 1982.

Eight other releases and multiple awards followed, including seven maple Blues Awards and Blues Album of the Year at the 2004 JUNO Awards for Painkiller.

His composition Why'd You Lie? was a hit for Canadian blues artist Colin James in 1988, and Davis' track Reefer Smokin' Man has been called a blues classic.

Tickets for Friday's performance are $10 in advance or $15 at the door, and are available at the Rad Zone, Case's Music, Thomas Walls School of Music and Northland Music.

Additional acts will be announced shortly.
