An Evening with Spencer Bohren @ Walton Arts Center
Jan 26 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Spencer has a marvelous gift for sharing his great love for Americas wealth of traditional folk, blues, gospel, and country music with audiences of all ages. His ability to animate the musicians and singers from the past with both respectful readings of their music and spellbinding stories is legendary. The atmosphere of his New Orleans home subtly informs each performance. What’s more, the stories that preface the songs are as fascinating and well-crafted as the songs themselves.

Shaw Davis & The Black Ties | Eureka Springs @ Chelsea's Corner Cafe & Bar
Jan 26 @ 9:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Shaw Davis is quickly becoming an artist to watch in Contemporary Blues-Rock. He’s a fast and flashy player whose approach rests equally on technical assurance and musical intelligence.

Born April 4, 1995, the young guitarist has burst his way onto the Blues-Rock scene and is already known for his raw and emotional style. Backed by drummer Bobby Van Stone and bassist Patrick Stevenson, Shaw Davis & The Black Ties feature their own brand of Psychedelic Blues-Rock that continues to win over fans and crowds of all ages.

Based out of Pompano Beach, the young power trio has already made multiple appearances on Blues Radio International and has been featured in South Florida Music Magazine for their crowd pleasing performances. The band also took home the “Fan-Favorite” award after blowing the audience away at the South Florida Blues Challenge in 2016. Returning to the competition in 2017, they won their “Road to Memphis” for the International Blues Competition in January of 2018. They have opened for and shared the stage with some of the nations and South Florida’s most respected blues-rock artists such as Albert Castiglia, Matt Schofield, GE Smith, JL Fulks and JP Soars.

Throughout their shows, the band plays a high-energy mix of originals as well as renditions of covers from some of their greatest influences like Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Cream, BB King and many other blues-rock giants. They released their debut album on June 14, 2017 and played a sold-out release concert at The Funky Biscuit in Boca Raton, Florida.
The album has been receiving steady airplay on blues/rock radio stations in the United States as well as the UK.

It also received an impressive review from Blues Magazine:
“We have a new young guitar hero! In person from Shaw Davis of South Florida. Fierce, raw guitar licks… The Davis guitar tears, barks and bites… We will certainly enjoy this guitarist in the future.”

Hosty | Eureka Springs @ Chelsea's Corner Cafe & Bar
Jan 27 @ 9:00 pm – 9:00 pm

“Out of Norman, Oklahoma, witty guitar guru Mike Hosty, plays as a One Man Band playing drums with his feet, playing the guitar and singing at the same time at the Deli in Norman, OK on Campus Corner and entertains as the Hosty Duo with sometimes with the addition of a Drummer combining for a tour schedule of 250 shows a year. Hosty simultaneously tears through gritty slide leads, blows harmonica and or Kazoo and uses foot pedals to stomp bass lines. His guitar collection includes an 8 string instrument that allows him to thump three bass strings with his thumb while he fingerpicks guitar. Whether solo Hosty or Hosty Duo, he has developed a huge underground following of bikers, sorority gals, hippies and truckers.”

His near-sighted grandmother and faithful dog follow his trail and are taken in by a trio of eccentric jazz-era divas. The motley sleuths follow the clues to an under- ground speakeasy, where they entertain the crowd. The chase is on!
