Piper Road Spring Band celebrates thirty+ years of playing their unique style of music.

The owner of Mitchell’s was in a predicament; the bar was packed and the jukebox had just broken down.Piper Road Spring Band saved the evening by playing acoustically to the musically starved crowd. That’s pretty much how the last forty years got started. With Mark, Barry and Randal, Piper Road Spring Band stands ready, instruments tuned, to respond to the next musical emergency.

WILLY PORTER w/Carmen Nickerson *SOLD OUT

Guitarist and singer/songwriter Willy Porter has been turning first time listeners into die-hard fans for more than two decades. He and singing partner, Carmen Nickerson, bring their brand of righteous indie-folk for a night of high-test tunes and tons of fun. Willy’s signature finger-picking guitar work and rich songwriting creates a one-of-a-kind musical ride that has energized audiences all over the world from stages shared with icons such as Jethro Tull, Tori Amos, Paul Simon, and Jeff Beck.

Carmen Nickerson’s soulful vocals and playful singing style pairs exquisitely with Willy’s grooves to produce soaring harmonies that add fresh layers and new depth to Willy’s songs.

The duo is touring in support of Willy’s 2015 release, Human Kindness, a disc that combines Willy’s acoustic, electric, and multi-string chops to bear on a group of songs that explore themes about connection, compassion, and the triumphs and struggles of the human journey. Willy and Carmen also bring new tunes to this tour, co-written by the pair, that feature on an upcoming album produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Ben Wisch (Marc Cohn, Jonatha Brooke), slated for release in the summer of 2016.

Willy’s warmth and wit on stage keep people grinning, but it’s his music that keeps them coming back for more.
