Encore Door County Performance by Willy Porter

Back by popular demand, Willy Porter will make another appearance in Door County at Ministry Door County Medical Center’s “Music in the Gardens” series on Aug. 23.

It’s been a few miles across America, Canada, the UK and Europe since Willy Porter released his debut CD, The Trees Have Soul in 1990. Back then he traveled in his Volkswagen selling discs out of the trunk, mesmerizing audiences with his guitar chops and original tunes.

Radio success established Porter as a nationally recognized artist, and ultimately signed with Private Music/BMG in 1995. European and American tours with Rickie Lee Jones, Tori Amos and The Cranberries followed. National tours also commenced with Paul Simon, Sting, Jeff Beck and Jethro Tull.

The Music in the Garden performance takes place at 6:30 pm on the hospital’s green space next to The Community’s Garden on 16th Avenue in Sturgeon Bay. Audience members should bring lawn chairs or blankets to sit on. This concert is free and open to the public. For more information call 920.493.5979.
