Meet Guy Davis

Guy Davis, a 2018 Grammy-nominated musician, has spent his musical life carrying his message of the blues around the world, from the equator to the Arctic Circle, earning him the title “An Ambassador of the Blues.” His work as an actor, author, and music teacher earmark him as a renaissance man of the blues. What music and acting have in common, he explains, “is that I don’t like people to see the hard work and the sweat that goes into what I do. I want them to hear me and be uplifted. And I want some little eight­-year-­old kid in the front row to have big eyes and say, 'Hey, I want to do that!'"
 
Guy's new album, Sonny & Brownie's Last Train was just nominated for a Grammy for Best Traditional Blues Album. Watch his interview on this recording.
 

Meet Mark Bruner

A native Oklahoman, (born in Frederick.Ok. in 1953) Mark has been a part of the Tulsa music scene for 30 years. The hallmark of his playing has always been his "chameleon like" diversity. A blues player extraordinaire for sure with a penchant for low tunings and evocative slide guitar... but his ability to shift musical styles from R&B to Jazz, Pop and American roots has him in constant demand. His sound, touch and"groove" have earned him critical acclaim, as well as nine Oklahoma State fingerstyle guitar titles. A soulful, stylistic vocalist as well, he is truly one of Oklahoma's outstanding musicians.
