Peterborough Folk Music presents Guy Davis for his first visit to Peterborough Saturday, Sept. 9, at 7 p.m. at Bass Hall at the Monadnock Center for History & Culture, 19 Grove St.

Davis is a two-time, back-to-back Grammy nominee for Best Traditional Blues, a musician, actor, author and songwriter. He uses a blend of roots, blues, folk, rock, rap, spoken-word and world music to comment on and address the frustrations of social injustice, touching on historical events and common life struggles. His background in theater is pronounced through the storytelling of songs “God’s Gonna Make Things Over” about the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre, “Welcome to My World” and “Got Your Letter In My Pocket.”

Davis won the “Keeping The Blues Alive” Award, and was nominated by The Blues Foundation for Best Acoustic Album of the Year, Best Acoustic Artist of the Year and Best Instrumentalist. Overall, he has been nominated nearly two dozen times by the Blues Foundation.

Tickets are $25 and $30. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Tickets and information are available at
