Gregory Porter In Conversation
Thu. 29 September 2016, 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm AEST
FREE EVENT : GREGORY PORTER IN CONVERSATION Blue Note recording artist and Grammy-winning singer, GREGORY PORTER combines the gentlist of spirits with one of the most majestically powerful voices in contemporary jazz and soul. Whether it's his moving, breakthrough Motor City protest single, 1960 What?, his collaborations with British electronic producers Disclosure or his new #1 jazz album Take Me To The Alley, Porter continues to win over audiences while swinging effortlessly between hand-clapping gospel and seriously good jazz bop.
Following his standout set at Glastonbury Festival earlier his year, Porter is playing two already sold-out shows in Australia this September and will be returning to play BluesFest in 2017. Tonight however, he will be live In Conversation with journalist Paris Pompor talking about everything from music, the art of songwriting and his creative inspirations, to growing up in Bakersfield with seven siblings and a mother who instilled in him strong ideas of social justice. During this free, intimate night you can also ask Gregory Porter your own question by RSVPing to be in the audience using the 'register' button above.
Gregory Porter In Conversation is co-presented by Universal Music Australia, Eastside Radio, BluesFest, APRA AMCOS and Groovescooter for the 2016 Sydney Fringe Festival.
