Almost three decades after winning a Grammy for Best New Artist and launching one of contemporary popular music’s most diverse careers, pianist/singer Bruce Hornsby still discovers clever and expansive ways to chronicle dynamic musical snapshots of his collaborations. Nothing better illustrates this than Hornsby’s reunion with his longtime band, the Noisemakers. Returning after his 2008 SMF debut with Ricky Skaggs, this closing night performance will be filled with influences from jazz, classical, folk, Motown, gospel, rock and blues traditions. After a recent performance in an Ann Arbor theater, the Oakland Press wrote: “Hornsby and company somehow made the audience feel as if it were part of a special, invitation-only bar gig or private show.”
