Many people know pianist and singer-songwriter Bruce Hornsby from his iconic '80s hit “The Way It Is.” Since that time, he’s pursued a more personal and eclectic musical path, collaborating with Ricky Skaggs, scoring Spike Lee films, and even being one of the unofficial members of the Grateful Dead. Hornsby’s live shows have a reputation for being creative, intimate, and spontaneous – Hornsby often engages audiences with fresh arrangements of well-known songs and stories from his two-and-a-half-decade career. That’s to be expected from an artist whose three Grammy Awards run the gamut – Best New Artist, Best Bluegrass Album, and Best Pop Instrumental Performance. A Bruce Hornsby show is an entertaining musical education, and that’s just the way it is.
