Porter Square Books After Hours is back, and this time, we’re spotlighting up-and-coming musicians through a new Hearth Concert series.
Our first musician is traveling all the way from San Francisco to bring her music to the shelves of waiting books and listeners.
An instrument like the harp doesn’t exactly inspire imagery of driving bass lines and mainstream appeal, and that’s what San Francisco Bay Area based harpist, singer/songwriter Ella Dawn Jenkins, aka EllaHarp is working to change.
Armed with a fresh take on contemporary blues, the musical lineage of composer/arranger Gordon Jenkins, and a unique instrument she designed for the purpose, EllaHarp is pushing the harp out of type-cast genre constraints and doing things differently.
Enjoy the music while perusing the shelves from 8:00-10:00 pm on Saturday, March 16 during the Hearth Concert @ Porter Square Books After Hours!
Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 at the door. Add a donation to your ticket to support the Hearth mission of building community through creativity that is approachable, affordable, and accessible!
