Musician, author, actor, and second-generation activist Guy Davis counts Pete Seeger as an important mentor. Blind Willie McTell and Big Bill Broonzy influenced Guy's musical storytelling, and artists as diverse as Lightnin’ Hopkins and Babatunde Olatunji inform his musicality. However, there’s one man that Guy most credits for his harmonica techniques, by stealing and crediting from him everything that he could, and that man is the legendary Sonny Terry. Guy’s Grammy-nominated newest album, Sonny & Brownie’s Last Train – A Look Back at Brownie McGhee and Sonny Terry, is an homage to these two hugely influential artists.
