Harlem Street Singer: The Reverend Gary Davis Story

Harlem Street Singer: The Reverend Gary Davis Story tells the story of Gary Davis, one of the most underrated musicians of our time. Though Davis has had a huge influence on many well-known musicians, including Bob Weir and Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead, Jorma Kaukonen of Jefferson Airplane, David Bromberg, Bob Dylan, Woody Mann, Dave Van Ronk, and Townes van Zandt, his story has gone virtually unknown until now.

Davis, who became blind as an infant, was born in South Carolina and worked his way up to Harlem in New York City where he was ordained as a Baptist minister and began preaching and playing on street corners. He was a master guitar player with a unique finger picking style and was a blues, ragtime and gospel music virtuoso. His guitar playing was complemented by a soulful voice that defined feeling.

The first official screening of the documentary was back in January 2013 in Boston, MA, but now screenings have been added in New York, NY; St. Louis, MO; Anchorage, AK; and the UK, for November and December as part of several film festivals – info for those is here below.

The Sundance Channel
Air date: May 6, 2008, 9pm EST

When thinking of environmentally friendly activities to include in their daily routines, most people will likely consider the more common things like recycling, decreasing auto emissions and air pollution, taking public transportation when possible, using energy saving light bulbs, etc. All of these are extremely important and making them priorities will contribute to keeping our planet green and healthy.

The fact is that all of our daily activities should be made with the environment in mind. This is the idea behind the Sundance Channel‘s weekly environmental series, The Green. For instance, most people don’t relate fashion choices to the environment. Tonight’s episode of Big Ideas for a Small Planet: Fashion focuses on fashion and tells us why something as seemingly innocent as buying a pair of jeans does have a significant impact on the environment.
