An Evening with Gregory Porter
Soulful crooning and bluesy truth-telling from two-time Grammy-winning jazz singer and songwriter.
“A jazz singer of thrilling presence … with a gift for earthy refinement and soaring uplift.” New York Times
Soulful crooner, bluesy truth teller and nuanced jazz artist, two-time Grammy-winner Gregory Porter is also an extraordinarily gifted songwriter, penning tunes full of “tantalizing wordplay, grown-up subject matter and flowing melodies” (The Telegraph, UK). Accompanied by a subtle band that gives him lots of space to ply his butterscotch baritone, he tunnels to the heart on songs that console, confess and gracefully acknowledge life’s joys and sorrows.
Funded in part by the Class of 1961 Legacy: The American Tradition in Performance Fund.
Two-time Grammy winner Gregory Porter—a singer with both high standing as jazz artist and enormous crossover appeal—will perform on Thursday, February 13, at 7 pm, in Spaulding Auditorium of the Hopkins Center for the Arts.
