Davy Knowles was born between two small towns in the Isle of Man.
Ever since he fell in love with music he has been chasing American sounds, from blues artists in the Mississippi Delta, to rock gods like Peter Frampton, Joe Satriani, Warren Hayes and The Grateful Dead.
Although he has shared a stage with all of those world famous names it was only after moving to Chicago that Davy realised he hadn't paid any attention to the native music of his Island home, to the local musicians playing traditional songs. To his own folk music.
Now he returns to 'rediscover his roots,' exploring the songs and music of the 'Celtic' nations, retracing the journeys of his ancestors.
Joining talented local musicians, including Mec Lir and Barrule, Davy's voyage of discovery also leads him back to some of his greatest musical heroes.
Davy sees, and hears, how their own folk music heritage has influenced world-renowned artists like Martin Simpson and Richard Thompson.
Follow Davy as he explores the Smokey Mountains in Tennessee, Brittany and the North of England - all places with vibrant folk music heritages.
