Willy Porter at the Mobius

Willy Porter combines blues, acoustic pop, grooving rock and soulful sounds. One of the artists at the forefront of the modern folk-music scene, he began his career by selling copies of his debut album out of the trunk of his car in 1990. Since then, Porter has juggled labels and flirted with mainstream success, but his music has remained consistently compelling.

After touring with the likes of Tori Amos, Paul Simon, Sting, Jeff Beck and the Cranberries, the Milwaukee-based singer-songwriter remains a live draw and a cult favorite.

Porter will be performing in concert at The Mobius on Thursday, March 22 at 8 p.m.

On his self-titled disc, "Willy Porter," the album combines his fiery acoustic guitar work with songwriting and vocal work equal parts rock muscle, and folk-based intimacy.

The solo live album "High Wire Live" forged Porters' relationship with his growing audience. He continued to stretch over the next couple of years morphing performance art, live audio looping, and improvisational sketch comedy into his solo whistle stops.

Each tour date became a unique event, a musical experience much greater than just a review of past, present and future recorded work.

His latest release, "Available Light" features Porter at the peak of his powers as a guitarist, singer, songwriter and recording artist.

The Mobius is located at 281 Fourth St., Ashland. Tickets are $10 students, $12 general. For more information, visit , or call 488-8894.
