BLUESFEST SIDESHOW - EASTER SUNDAY
The journey began for Davy Knowles growing up in 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's professional career started with a bang – arriving in America age 19 with his band, an acclaimed debut album, and rave reviews at SXSW 2007.
His 2016 album Three Miles From Avalon sees Davy returning to his roots, and the sounds that first ignited his passion for music. Recorded exclusively in his adopted hometown of Chicago, the capital of electric blues provided Knowles with a landscape steeped in legend, inspiring him to creatively explore the genre of music he’s always loved – energetic, guitar driven blues-rock. The album reveals the musical influences close to Davy’s heart, showcasing his love of blues and classic rock with affection. Knowles’ is known for his confident and distinctive guitar playing, commanding solos and tight-knit band who possess not only stunning technical ability, but soul too.
