The following description was submitted by the event organizer.
Some folks are lucky to find what they love to do at an early age and quietly settle in for the long haul, expanding and developing their work over the arc of a lifetime. Willy Porter is one of those artists. He has followed his own path to explore the sacred language that music truly is. 30 years after his solo recording debut, he continues to reach further into his guitar and pen while stretching the form of his own music.
Willy Porter continues on a musical and personal odyssey spanning over two decades, 11 albums, and multiple continents. His journey has been defined by an inquisitive love for humanity and the language describing what we all believe to be true. Porter’s songs weave a universal perspective about human existence's questions, struggles, and triumphs. His live shows are guitar-driven grit, soul, silence and muscle — at times electrifying, dynamic, and unique in the way that Porter’s voice blends and fuses with his fretwork.
