Willy Porter & Carmen Nickerson Live at Newburyport Brewing Co.
Join us on Friday December 2, 2016 at the Newburyport Brewing Co for an intimate performance from the legendary acoustic guitarist and songwriter, Willy Porter, as he joins forces with vocalist and Milwaukee native Carmen Nickerson, to form Porter Nickersontwo unique artists, one unforgettable sound, in one intimate venue.
Porter has been turning first time listeners into die-hard fans for more than two decades. His blistering guitar playing, rich songwriting, and warm, playful performance style make him a one-man triple threat.
Nickerson is an ideal match. Her vocals add lush harmonies to Porters songs, making them feel both fresh and timeless. The pair collaborated on the 2013 EP Cheeseburgers and Gasoline and again on Porters 2015 record Human Kindness. In 2016 the duo performed as the featured musical guests on NPRs A Prairie Home Companion.
Porter Nickerson are excited to bring listeners the new disc, Bonfire to Ash, their first album of original co-writes produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Ben Wisch (March Cohn, Jonatha Brooke). Bonfire to Ash charts experiences that bridge the intimate with the universal. From the thirsty shoots of new love (Big Red Barn), to the urgency to save love from skidding out of reach forever (Loving On Her Mind), and again in the anthemic elegy to relationships and legacies forged in Americas heartland on the song Living Proof. Porter and Nickerson perfect a unique dialogue through the songs on this record that carries over into their unassailable stage chemistry.
Together these highly accomplished artists take audiences on a unique musical ride full of heart, grit, energy, and fun that showcases the best of what live music has to offer.
