Murray Porter

About Murray Porter: Murray Porter’s music has an instantly recognizable sound. The Mohawk piano player from Six Nations of the Grand River Territory brings his culture and history to the masses through his music. With a mix of blues, country, and humour, Porter’s gravelly, soulful voice sings not only of the history and contemporary stories of the Indigenous Peoples of Canada, but also universal themes of love, lost and found. He has spent over 35 years playing his self-taught unique style of footstomping, hand clapping blues piano around the world.

Supported by the Nasser Family Fund to Promote Cultural Awareness and Appreciation the Office of the Vice-Dean Research, Scholarly and Artistic Work (College of Arts and Science), the Office of the Associate Dean of Aboriginal Affairs (College of Arts and Science), the Office of Aboriginal Initiatives (U of S) and the Office of the Vice-President Research (U of S).
Reception is sponsored by the U of S Alumni Association.
