Swinging the Blues

 Blues at BIS 2

Blues musician Guy Davis of New York City sings a song he wrote about a Southern sharecropper family to Bellefontaine Intermediate School fourth-graders Thursday during an artist residency offered by LoCo Art this week at the school. He has been playing the guitar for 45 years, and he grew up listening to stories about his grandmother’s early years in Georgia and South Carolina that has influenced his music today, he said. He also performed at LoCo Art’s open house Thursday night, an event featured in a photo elsewhere on Page 1 today. (EXAMINER PHOTO | MANDY LOEHR)
