Professor Harp at The Porch
Thursday, February 20 @ 8:30 pm - 11:30 pmFree
The Porch Southern Fare & Juke Joint at River’s Edge presents an evening of music with blues harmonica player Professor Harp, a k a Hugh Holmes. The Professor 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.”
Admission is free but tickets may be reserved through The Porch’s Facebook event page/Eventbrite.
