Sammy Davis is one of the last living Delta bluesmen. He began his career in the 1940s, playing with Pine Top Perkins, Earl Hooker, and Albert King. In the 1970s, Little Sammy disappeared from the music scene, only to be rediscovered in Poughkeepsie by WVKR Blues Radio Host Doug Price around 1990. Midnight Slim is Fred Scribner, whom Davis met at the jams in the Hudson Valley, NY.

Sammy and Fred headlined several Blues Festivals produced by music enthusiast Anders Thueson & the Hudson Valley Blues Society including the first and second Hudson Valley Blues Festivals in 1997 & 1998, Summertime Blues Festival at Opus 40 in Woodstock, NY as well as two successful Harvest Harp Blowouts held at Benmarl Vineyards, Marlboro, NY. Together, Little Sammy Davis and Midnight Slim performed as the house band for Imus' radio show for much of the 1990s and have put out several outstanding blues albums including "I Ain't Lyin" which earned a comeback award for Sammy and considerable world press attention. Sammy later joined Levon Helm's Ramble and toured extensively with Levon until suffering a stroke in 2009. After a difficult and slow recovery to return to the stage, Sammy relapsed with his second stroke in 2010 and currently is under care in a Middletown, NY nursing facility.

Loved by everyone who has ever met or witnessed his incredible talent, Sammy is truly one of the greatest unsung heroes of the Blues. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
