"A genre-defying maverick"
Spend an evening with Willy Porter, and you'll experience a rare communion between artist and audience. His concerts are one-of-a-kind events in which amazing guitar chops and songwriting merge into a single unit. Porter's acoustic guitar skills have drawn comparisons with those of Leo Kottke, who drew the young Willy Porter into music the first time he heard the "6 & 12 String Guitar" album. He continues to stretch each show by incorporating performance art, live audio looping, and improvisational sketch comedy. Each Willy Porter show becomes a unique event, a musical experience much greater than just a review of past, present and future recorded work. Willy was MC of the 2020 Ann Arbor Folk Festival, and we're looking forward to hearing him from the comfort of his own home.
