American singer-songwriter Willy Porter from Wisconsin is bringing his searing signature guitar sound back to Dorset after a gap of three years.

Willy has been turning first-time listeners into die-hard fans for more than two decades, and he's coming back to play the village hall in Broadmayne, near Dorchester, on Thursday, May 26, as part of his UK tour.

Willy blurs the line between indie-folk, Americana and rock and perhaps a tinge of blues, with his absorbing lyrics and playful, high-energy live performance style.

He has shared world stages with music icons Jeff Beck, Paul Simon and Tori Amos, carving out a successful solo career as an artist who makes music which resonates long after the last guitar chord fades.

Equally accomplished as a guitarist, singer and songwriter, his songs weave a universal perspective about the questions, struggles and triumphs of human existence.

Willy's wit, charm and dexterity have not suffered during the enforced break of 2020-21 and during this period he live-streamed his 'bunker sessions' on Facebook.

He is currently working on his 13th album for release this year.

Doors for the Broadmayne gig open at 7pm for a 7.30pm start. There will be a licensed bar.

Tickets cost £15 from the website wegottickets.com or can be bought from Cornerhouse Stores, Main Street, Broadmayne or by calling Tim Clayton on 07443 659912.
