About Morgan Davis

Morgan Davis has been on the road playing the blues for 48 years. Growing up in Detroit in the 1950’s, blues, R & B, and rock and roll was in the air, along with the new “Motown” sound. Davis came to Canada in 1968, settling in Toronto, which was a stop along the blues club circuit for all the travelling Chicago musicians – and Davis had a chance to see them all, and learn directly from legends like Muddy Waters. He sought out players like Sunnyland Slim and Johnny Shines, both of whom played with Robert Johnson, one of Morgan’s biggest influences.

Over the years, Davis has won 8 Maple Blues Awards, 2 Jazz Report Awards, and the JUNO in 2003 for Blues Album of the Year. His latest release, “Home Away from Home,” is on Downbeat magazine’s Top 50 albums of 2018 list.

Davis performs solo, playing traditional and original blues on electric guitars and 3 string cigar-box guitar.

Here’s a sample of Davis’ music.

Doors open at 7:00 p.m., music starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $20, available at AX or online here, 12 Maple Ave, or by calling (506) 433-8351.
