Just Announced Madison Concert: Willy Porter, 9.6.14

Willy Porter

Nationally-acclaimed musician Willy Porter is returning to Art in the Barn, 5927 Adams Rd., Fitchburg, WI to perform a benefit concert for Haiti Allies on Saturday, September 6 at 7:30 p.m.  Porter’s first concert for Haiti Allies in 2012 was a standing-room-only show that delivered an evening of songs with rich lyrics and accomplished finger-style guitar accompaniments.

Porter’s music moves easily from guitar-driven rock to the open-tuned wonderland of the new acoustic frontier. His live shows combine his guitar playing, songwriting and on-stage improvisational skills as a storyteller and performance artist.  Fellow artist Tori Amos says “Willy plays rhythms that make me want to crawl inside his guitar and sleep there forever.”

With a career spanning more than 20 years, Porter’s latest CD is entitled, Cheeseburgers & Gasoline, (released Nov 2012) and is available from Weasel Records.  According to Billboard magazine,”Porter accentuates well-rendered tales with spit-fire-percussive acoustic guitar strumming and fiery color – chord picking.”

A show in this intimate venue delivers an up-close-and-personal interplay with the featured artist that’s truly unique in the music scene.  People attending the event are encouraged to come early and bring a picnic meal to enjoy before the concert. Handmade Haitian artwork and Madison-based Rusty Dog Coffee will be offered for sale.  Money raised will benefit Haiti Allies’ efforts in Haiti.

Tickets are $25 (children 6 and under are free) and available here or at Art in the Barn on the day of the show.
