April 22nd, 2017

 

On Saturday April 22nd, 2017, I joined a group of people to watch Juno award winning Murray Porter perform at lelem’ Arts & Cultural Cafe. He is a self-taught musician with over 30 years’ experience. He opened the evening with the song “Rez Blues” and went on to do original song after another.

His stories behind the songs he’s written were relatable to people in the audience, he had people laughing, and I was moved by a couple of the songs. His voice reminded me of Elton John and I was just thinking this when he went on to do a cover song of “Daniel.” It was beautiful.

Murray shared stories of opening for Etta James and BB King, it was an enjoyable evening. He made a Murray Porter blues fan out of me.
