Traditional blues will be the focus of a rootsy program titled “True Blues” at 8 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 12, at the Mondavi Center.

Featured will be three veteran performers and recording artists — Cory Harris, a singer, guitarist, songwriter and bandleader who was featured in a Martin Scorsese film that traced the blues from West Africa to the American South; Guy Davis, a musician and composer, with several albums to his credit, who also is the son of actors Ruby Dee and Ossie Davis; and Alvin Youngblood Hart, who has recorded albums on his own and with groups, and contributed musically to several films as well.

Modern audiences are typically accustomed to seeing the blues performed by electric guitars, but these contemporary musicians focus on keeping the music’s acoustic roots alive.

There will be a pre-performance talk at 7 p.m. featuring Harris, Davis and Hart, who will be interviewed by UC Davis professor Julia Simon, a blues enthusiast and bass player who teaches a humanities course on the “Cultural History of the Blues.”

Tickets are $54 general, $24.50 for UC Davis students, available at www.mondaviarts.org or 530-754-2787.
