Will Porter Takes the Stage at Peg Egan PAC

On Sunday, July 13 at 7 pm, one of Wisconsin’s best songwriters, Willy Porter, will take the stage at the Peg Egan PAC in Egg Harbor.

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.

With pop songwriting sensibility and acoustic guitar work that would grow into a style uniquely his own – a mixture of Leo Kottke, Michael Hedges, Richard Thompson, and Lindsey Buckingham – Porter is not to be missed, especially since he is most at home in the live show environment.

Porter’s combined experience at both major and independent record labels ultimately fueled the drive to release a wider variety of music on a more frequent basis and led Porter to start his own imprint, Weasel Records in December, 2005. His latest release, Available Light (Ryko Distribution), features Porter at the peak of his powers as a guitarist, singer, songwriter, and recording artist. The Peg Egan Performing Arts Center is located on Church Street in Egg Harbor. All concerts are free to the public and sponsored by: The Egg Harbor Village, Egg Harbor Business Association, Door County Memorial Hospital/Ministry Health, Julies Park Cafe and Motel, The Art of Music Foundation, Leinenkugel’s and The Orchards Golf Course.

In case of rain the concert will be held at the Orchards Golf Course in Egg Harbor. Please bring a blanket or chair! Sunglasses too!
