Reverend Gary Davis

Reverend Gary Davis was a towering figure in at least two realms.  As a finger-style guitarist he developed a complex yet swinging approach to picking that has influenced generations of players, including Jerry Garcia, Ry Cooder, Dave Van Ronk, Jorma Kaukonen and Stefan Grossman.  And as a composer of religious and secular music he created a substantial body of work that has been recorded by, among others, Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, Jackson Browne, Peter Paul & Mary and the Grateful Dead.
