Willy Porter

Guitarist and singer/songwriter Willy Porter has been turning first time listeners into die-hard fans for more than two decades, and he's an Ark favorite. He returns this time as emcee of the 2020 Ann Arbor Folk Festival bringing his brand of righteous indie-folk along with some terrific storytelling. 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. Acoustic Guitar magazine calls Willy "a relaxed and fearless performer who'll entertain you as well as move you," and Folk Festival audiences on both nights will be in for a little of both.
