You have two chances to see Davey Knowles, Larry McCray, and headliner Lath Al-Saadi. Doors open at 4 pm, concert from 6 pm - 12 am each night.
Davy Knowles journey began on the Isle of Man, learning to play guitar from listening to the likes of Gallagher, Clapton, Knopfler, Green and Mayall in his father's record collection and honing his skills playing the local music circuit. Knowles' professional career started with a bang - arriving in American at age 19 with his band, Back Door Slam, an acclaimed debut album, and rave reviews. Knowles proceeded to make a significant impact across US media - from memorable TV performances on Jimmy Kimmel and Good Morning America to a three year run on the radio with the singles, "Come Home" and "Tear Down the Walls." His albums hit the Top 3 Billboard Blues Chart.
Larry McCray has stood on the front lines of the contemporary American Blues scene for nearly three decades now. Possessing an unmistakably biting and simultaneously distinct and cascading tone to his fluid guitar playing and an expressive and full baritone voice, this year alone McCray has performed at over 56 Blues festivals throughout the world and is constantly expanding his formidable reputation to wider international acclaim.
Laith Al-Saadi scored an impressive fourth place finish overall on the Emmy-winning reality singing competition The Voice and did his Grammy-winning coach Adam Levine proud. He mesmerized the audience and “Voice” coaches with his wicked guitar skills and arguably served up the most entertaining performances of any of the finalists last season. Adam Levine repeatedly praised Al-Saadi’s artistry and visibly had a blast accompanying him on drums and guitar at different points on the show.
