Friday March 9

6:00 PM  –  10:00 PM

Please join us for the second concert of our Side Door Music Series, bringing talented musicians from across the globe to the Currier Museum of Art.

Midwest indie artists, Willy Porter and Carmen Nickerson, will perform on March 9th in our beautiful auditorium. Porter has been turning first time listeners into die-hard fans for more than two decades. His blistering guitar playing and rich songwriting provides the perfect architecture to support Nickerson’s lush vocals, complimenting and elevating Porter’s songs to make them feel both fresh and timeless. With their liquid harmonies and unassailable, playful performance chemistry, these two solo artists have joined their unique talents to create the unforgettable sound of Porter Nickerson. The duo is excited to bring their new album, Bonfire to Ash, to concertgoers at the Currier Museum of Art.

Dusty Gray will perform solo as the opening act. The Dusty Gray Band is a powerhouse roots rock/country band hailing from the woods of New Hampshire. Led by Nashville songwriter Dusty Gray, the five-piece group has performed around the northeast, opening for such acts as Willie Nelson, Blues Traveler, Randy Houser, Lee Brice and others. Noted for their high-energy shows, the band was nominated for a New England Music Award in 2014, and continues to bring their soulful good ol' rock n roll to clubs, parties and festivals around the region.
