The man who brought us “That’s Just the Way It Is” and “Mandolin Rain” returns to Koerner Hall for an intimate solo evening. “Bruce Hornsby's illustrious career has included just about every type of success a musician can experience … He is known for his acoustic piano playing and honest lyrics intensified by his strong vocals. Hornsby's songs are real life stories about small-town people.” (MusicianGuide) “With ‘The Way It Is,’ Hornsby seemed set for a career as a meditative singer-songwriter; his collaborations with Don Henley (‘The End of the Innocence’) and Bonnie Raitt (‘I Can’t Make You Love Me’) bolstered his adult-pop cred. Instead, he has followed his own unpredictable muse for three decades. He briefly joined the Grateful Dead, worked with jazz players like Branford Marsalis and Pat Metheny, ventured into electronica, and wrote music for assorted Spike Lee projects.” (Rolling Stone)
