EDDY DAVIS – Four-String Performance – A 2006 inductee for Promotion based on the world-wide recognition he brings to the banjo through his concert and film appearances (most notably with actor/musician Woody Allen), Davis is equally recognized as a banjo player, vocalist and performer. From his college days as a member of the original Salty Dogs, to years on the Chicago nightlife scene, to forays in the banjo nightclubs of the 1960s and 70s, to his acceptance as an integral part of the vibrant ongoing jazz fabric of Manhattan, the performance career of Eddy Davis is unique and worthy of recognition.

Otis Taylor Band leading man playing his Ode, circa 1964…ahead of his time!

Congrats to Ome artist Tim O’Brien and The Earls of Leicester for their GRAMMY!!!!
