Davy Knowles

June 10 @ 7:29 am

Blues rocker Davy Knowles will appear for the first time at the Crystal Bay Casino on Friday, March 31. The free Red Room show starts at 10 p.m.

Knowles is from the Isle of Man, a small island between England and Ireland. He now lives in Chicago. At 29, Knowles said he is still developing his unique style.

“My favorite artists have always taken a roots genre like the blues and elaborated on it,” he said. “People like Rory Gallagher, for instance. He played blues but he was an Irishman and he had this Celtic inflection to whatever he played. A combination of influences created what might be your style. It’s certainly a work in progress. It’s not like I’ve found it and this is what I do.”

Knowles’ blues has an edgy rock sound.

He played last summer at Squaw Valley’s Bluesdays and in 2009 opened for Chickenfoot at the Lake Tahoe Outdoor Arena at Harveys.
