Three-time Grammy® winner Bruce Hornsby has built one of the most diverse, collaborative, and adventurous careers in contemporary music. He has collaborated with the Grateful Dead, Spike Lee, and Ricky Skaggs, to name a few. He has fused the plunk and dazzle of 20th century modernist classical composition to singer-songwriter emotional inquiries. Hornsby describes Absolute Zero, his new album, as “a compendium of what I like and moves me.” Don’t expect, perhaps, a thing or two new, but prepare for a multifaceted ride. Hornsby’s songs, both in spirit and memory, function collectively as an homage to fiction writing that, while often poetic, takes no prisoners. His performance will offer a glimpse of a restless spirit who continues to push forward into exciting new musical terrain.
“It’s always been about staying inspired, broadening my reach and range of abilities and influences, and exploring new areas,” Hornsby said in the announcement of his Kingston show. “I’m very fortunate to be able to do that, to be a lifelong student, and to continue to pursue a wide-ranging musical life.”
