We all have people in our lives who inspire us, encourage us, and who push us to dream, hope and create. For musicians Guy Davis and Fabrizio Poggi, two of those inspirations are bluesmen Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee. Earlier in 2017, they released a tribute album, ‘Sonny and Brownie’s Last Train.’ Guy Davis explains the concept of the recording: “Brownie McGhee and Sonny Terry were two musicians whose work will not be surpassed, let alone improved on. This musical opus, was produced by Fabrizio Poggi. It features our combined musical talents, and is not meant to compete with the originals. It’s meant to be a love letter to Brownie and Sonny signed by the both of us. They were two of my favorites.”
In March 2017, Davis and Poggi came to Beehive Productions studio in Saranac Lake, NY for an exclusive in-studio performance and to share their tribute to Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee.
