Return visit of talented singer songwriter – Thursday 26th May

WILLY  PORTER

Those who were lucky enough to see Willy Porter in concert in Broadmayne in 2019 will already know what a joy and pleasure it is to experience his music in person. It’s not just Tori Amos who is a fan (see below): his praises were being sung around this village for weeks afterwards Well, we are delighted finally to be welcoming him back in May, this time in the Village Hall. Come along and join us for an evening of superb music and entertainment, an evening with genre-bending and accomplished guitar playing singer songwriter Willy Porter.

Porter’s songs weave a universal perspective about the questions, struggles, and triumphs of human existence. His live shows are guitar-driven with grit and soul; silence and muscle; commentary and humour; dynamic, and unique in the way that Porter’s voice blends and fuses with his fret work.

From Wisconsin, USA, Willy is so enthusiastic to be back in the UK after a forced break of nearly 3 years for obvious reasons. His wit, charm and musical dexterity lost nothing in this period. Some folks are lucky to find what they love to do at an early age and quietly settle in for the long haul, expanding and developing their work over the arc of a lifetime.

Willy Porter is one of those artists.  He has followed his own path to explore the sacred language that music truly is. 30 years after his solo recording debut, he continues to reach further into his guitar & pen while stretching the form of what his own music can be.  He’s currently working on his 13th album for release in 2022.


“Willy Porter is a relaxed and fearless performer who’ll entertain you as well as move you.” — Acoustic Guitar Magazine

“Porter can captivate an audience as completely as an entire rock band.” — Washington Times

“Willy plays rhythms that make me want to crawl inside his guitar and sleep there forever” –Tori Amos
