Thursday 25. august - 17:45 - Klubscenen
Friday 26. august - 22:15 - Visemøllen

Three eminent musicians from traditional American roots music’s premier league, playing a delectable mix of blues, folk, soul and old-time. Gumbo, Grits & Gravy are like a delicious home-cooked meal, judiciously spiced and  served on the proverbial front porch in the company of good friends, tall tales and mature traditions. The band’s current members have plenty of history in their baggage. Guy Davis plays guitar and sings, and has performed at Tønder Festival several times. He is a top-drawer bluesman, nominated for numerous prizes, and has toured the world as an ambassador for traditional acoustic blues. Bruce Molsky, guitar, banjo, violin, song, is no stranger to Tønder Festival either. A musicians’ musician, nominated for numerous awards and a proponent of the rich traditions of Appalachian old-time music. Walter Parks, on guitar, bass, and vocal, is steeped in the ‘hollers and hymns’ style of south-eastern Georgia, USA. He has previously worked with Richie Havens and Judy Collins. Gumbo, Grits & Gravy, in years past including other musicians, such as the fiddler Anne Harris and pianist Marcella Simien, are favouring Tønder Festival with their only Danish festival concert in 2022.
