Willy Porter
TICKETS WILL BE AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR!   Doors open at 6:45 p.m. Concert begins at 7:30 p.m. 
Having toured with artists as diverse as Jeff Beck and Tori Amos, Porter capitalizes on his experience as a seasoned live performer on How To Rob A Bank. World-renowned guitarist Greg Koch had this to say about Porter’s new disc: "you get the same feeling listening to it as you do from one of his solo gigs...that you are in the presence of greatness…” Each song is a fresh crosspollination of styles, genres and musical forms. Frets Magazine called Porter"a genre-defying maverick.

 

In addition, Porter finished recording an album in Denver with his side project, The Mealies, which includes members of the Carpe Diem String Quartet. In the spring of 2010 Willy joined up with the Carpe Diem String Quartet in their hometown of Columbus for a supposed one-time-only collaboration. What ended up happening is that they wowed audiences and realized they created something special. Those performances are now captured in part on "The Mealies - Live at BoMA." Seven of Willy's previously released songs have been beautifully rearranged with the quartet for a stunning new take on these fan favorites. "That's an exciting project," he said. "So there's a whole bunch of stuff, irons in the fire as it were."

This project is supported by grants from the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin and the National Endowment for the Arts. Accommodations provided by the Heidel House Resort and Spa.
