Mary Bridget Davies, Tony nominated star of “A Night with Janis Joplin” on Broadway; and Special Guest, Mia Dyson
Mary Bridget Davies
The powerhouse rock and blues singer’s love of music was instilled by her parents, who raised her on a healthy diet of the Allman Brothers Band, Stevie Wonder, James Brown, Joe Cocker and, naturally, Janis Joplin. She cites an array of contemporary artists she loves ranging from Pearl Jam, Alice In Chains, Avett Brothers and Florence & The Machine to Nicky Minaj, and Eminem.
Upon gaining local acclaim for her work in various rock bands, she was asked to sit in with Big Brother & The Holding Company (Janis Joplin’s original band, with whom she would later tour) as well as legendary blues guitarist Robert Lockwood Jr. Her travels have taken her around the world, including a 2 year pre- Broadway run with “A Night With Janis Joplin.” She received her Tony nomination for “Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Musical.” when the show debuted on Broadway in 2013.
Mia Dyson is a four time ARIA nominated and award winning Australian singer songwriter and guitarist currently living in Los Angeles. She’s toured with the likes of Stevie Nicks, Bonnie Raitt, Eric Clapton, Chris Isaak and Joe Cocker.
She has just released her second American made album “Idyllwild”, a “Brilliant” (Daytrotter) and “bold new venture” (TheMusic.au) that finds her continuing to explore the boundaries of what one woman can do with a rock and roll band, a guitar built by her father, and “a sublime grit & gravel voice that lands her squarely between Lucinda Williams & Bob Dylan”(Boston Globe).
