Willy Porter came through WYCE this past March to promote his Pin-Drop Series concert... and our ears were never the same.

Porter is a contemporary American rock singer-songwriter from Mequon, Wisconsin. An accomplished finger-style guitarist though he has focused more on song-based playing since the mid 1990's. His work has garnered widely positive reviews. The Washington Post wrote that "Porter is a dazzling acoustic guitarist with a moody baritone." The Village Voice said "Porter captures the street corner ethic of acoustic performance perfectly." The Boston Globe reported that Porter is a guitarist who possesses "the Olympian speed of Leo Kottke bolstered by rootsy vocals and twisting, offbeat lyrics." -via Wikipedia
