Informative Review of ’10 Blues Festival and Port Townsend

Chuck Berry aficionado Peter O'Neil came out to Port Townsend for the 2010 Port Townsend Acoustic Blues Festival. The draw for him was faculty member Daryl Davis, who in addition to being an outstanding and complex musician in his own right, also serves as musical director for Berry.

Peter was kind enough to write about his experience, and it is one of the most informative reviews (from a concert-going perspective) we've seen. He talks about Daryl's musical effort to inform the public about the true roots of Rock-n-Roll, Annieville Blues, and also gives a nice tourist snapshot of Port Townsend.

"Aside from great music, what the show gave me was a better sense of who Daryl Davis is: not only a great musician and entertainer, but also an historian and teacher. He teaches the audience where the music comes from, and obviously takes huge pleasure in teaching his craft to the workshop attendees."
