TEDxChemungRiver - Willie Davis - Musical Performance

Willie Davis performs two of his original songs at TEDxChemungRiver.Willie describes himself: "I am a Colarado native and moved to Horseheads, NY in 2001. I own SOUNDWORKS MUSIC and have been performing in music groups since 1969. After surviving woodstock and disco, I grew fond of country music in the 1970s. Playing a variety of music styles has given me an opportunity to create music that has a touch of country, rock, blues, bluegrass and rhythm from the islands. Playing the harmonica in a style different from all others has become my passion. My influences when I began playing were Paul Butterfield, Charlie McCoy, Stevie Wonder, Buddy Greene, Toots Theilman, as well as many others. I put to music, stories and experiences I had growing up, on the road, heartaches and wonderful times. I hope everyone can find something they can enjoy in one or more of my songs, and that the songs can be an inspiration to live your life and tell your stories."In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
