Share An Evening With Willy Porter
Please come for a very special fundraising event on Saturday, July 11th at 9:30 pm (the early show SOLD OUT!!!) with spectacular Weasel Records recording artist Willy Porter!! Don’t miss this rare show. The venue seats a small audience, so the experience is up close and personal. Unfortunately, I am unable to attend and would love it if some of my readers could go in my stead.
Willy Porter has been a featured performer on both Shrewsbury Media Connection‘s Mostly Rock ‘n Roll program several times, and has played other sold out concerts at SMC to enthusiastic and grateful audiences.
A portion of all ticket sales goes towards SMC’s Nicholas J. Todisco Young Filmmakers Scholarship. You can order tickets here.
Plenty of free parking available in lot shared with Parker Road Preschool.
“Guitarist and singer/songwriter Willy Porter has been turning first time listeners into die-hard fans for more than two decades. He and singing partner Carmen Nickerson bring their brand of righteous indie-folk for a night of high-test tunes and tons of fun. Willy’s signature finger-picking guitar work and rich songwriting creates a one-of-a-kind musical ride that has energized audiences all over the world from stages shared with icons such as Jethro Tull, Tori Amos, Paul Simon, and Jeff Beck.Carmen Nickerson’s soulful vocals and playful singing style pairs exquisitely with Willy’s grooves to produce soaring harmonies that add fresh layers and new depth to Willy’s songs.The duo is touring in support of Willy’s new record, Human Kindness(2015), his most sophisticated production to date. Human Kindness combines Willy’s acoustic, electric, and multi-string chops to bear on a stunning group of songs that explore themes about connection, compassion, and the triumphs and struggles of the human journey. From the Who-influenced anthem ‘Freedom’ to the lighter than air love song ‘Roses in the Rain’ to the powerful wake-up call of the title track, ‘Human Kindness,’ this record is a full musical experience.Willy’s warmth and wit on stage keep people grinning, but it’s his music that keeps them coming back for more.”
