Professor Harp at The Porch
Friday, November 6 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Blues harmonica player Professor Harp returns to The Porch Southern Fare & Juke Joint at River’s Edge for another high-energy night of live music. The Professor, a k a Hugh Holmes, was a rock ‘n’ roll drummer until 1969, when the Boston blues revival and a sterling performance by blues harmonica great George Allen “Harmonica” Smith combined to lure him away from drums and into a full- court press on the blues harp. Primarily playing a sparse yet full-sounding brand of no-nonsense, no-frills Texas-style blues, Professor Harp specializes in what he calls roots music. “It’s whatever makes me feel good and moves me, so to speak.” Dinner reservations required.
