Recently, Northwest Park Nature Center in Windsor hosted Guy Davis and Fabrizio Poggi.
Davis has once again joined up with veteran Italian harmonica player Fabrizio Poggi on a new album, Sonny & Brownie’s Last Train – A Look Back at Brownie McGhee and Sonny Terry. Thet are touring in support of the album’s release.
Recorded in the summer of 2016 in Milan, the album features, songs by both Sonny and Brownie, as well as songs known to have been recorded and performed by the famed duo written by their contemporaries, such as Libba Cotton and Leadbelly.
Northwest Park & Nature Center is a 473-acre park that includes more than 12 miles of trails, a children’s tree house and hands-on displays. Sheep, goats and chickens live in the adjacent animal barn. The Luddy/Taylor Connecticut Valley Tobacco Museum houses early and modern harvesting equipment in a former curing shed.
