Henry Butler
Henry Butler
Norton Center for the Arts – Weisiger Theatre, Danville KY

 
When it comes to jazz and blues, New Orleans is the city that gave and then kept on giving. The musical breeding ground for such giants of traditional jazz as Louis Armstrong, King Oliver, and Jelly Roll Morton, The Big Easy also gave rise to a present-day giant, pianist and singer Henry Butler – a super virtuoso and ebullient performer who embodies the buoyant spirit of his birthplace. Butler can play it all, from early to modern jazz, with plenty of New Orleans R&B peeking through.
 
Blinded by glaucoma as an infant, Butler began his musical studies early in life. After the release of “Fivin’ Around” in 1986, he quickly built an international reputation as an astonishing keyboard artist and a stylistically inclusive performer. Butler’s solo performance will be an amalgam of boogie-woogie, jazz, and blues.
