Join us for a truly inspiring and joyous program of music with Guy Davis, in his show Routes of the Blues. Acclaimed artist, Guy Davis, has spent his musical life carrying his message of the blues around the world, from the Equator to the Arctic Circle, earning him the title “An Ambassador of the Blues”. His work as an actor (film, TV and Broadway), author and music teacher earmark him as a renaissance man of the blues. This show introduces the history of the Blues and demonstrates its different styles, rhythms and story themes.

Eric LeGrand, former defensive tackle for the Rutgers University Scarlet Knights football team, suffered a severe spinal cord injury and was left paralyzed by a crushing on-field tackle during a heated game with Army. Eric’s book Believe is a remarkable, true account of a courageous young athlete whose unshakable faith, spirit, positive outlook, and rousing motto, “BELIEVE!” would serve as inspiration to legions of fans—and as motivation in his own quest to walk again. Eric’s story received national attention, heavily covered by ESPN and Sports Illustrated. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed Eric to a symbolic contract as an undrafted free agent in May 2012. In 2017, LeGrand was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as the third recipient of the Warrior Award. Students will hear how Eric overcame the odds and became a leader and a role model.

Virtual Event

Acclaimed pianist Barron Ryan will share three lessons from his performance career, through inspirational stories and musical selections that will outline a blueprint audiences can use to create their own destined plan for greatness. He will dispel the notion that leaders were born for their success, as well as equipping the audience with tools they can use, in order to form their own tales of triumph.
