– In Fish Creek, White Gull Inn will host singer-songwriter Joshua Davis in the inn’s ongoing winter folk music series at 8 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 8. Info: whitegullinn.com. According to a press release: Davis is a prolific songwriter who was already a heavily touring/recording artist both as a single and with his previous band Steppin’ In It, (featured in the White Gull Inn concert series in 2007 and 2010) when he got a call from TV’s “The Voice” in 2015. Unfamiliar with the show, he initially rejected the inquiry, but the producers were persistent. After being convinced by his wife and allowed to skip the auditions, Davis signed up for six months in the national TV spotlight. A Top 3 finalist that season, Davis went on to sing high-profile duets with Sheryl Crow and Adam Levine and became the first artist to sing an original on the show. Davis has shared the stage with a “Who’s Who” of American folk music icons including Pete Seeger, Arlo Guthrie, Greg Brown and Abigail Washburn. His most recent full-length album is “The Way Back Home.”
