An Afternoon with Bruce Hornsby at Adelphi University on October 22

Written by Kali Chan  |  04. October 2017

Garden City, NY - October 4, 2017 - Bruce Hornsby brings his distinct creativity to the Adelphi University Performing Arts Center in an exciting solo performance. Bruce Hornsby will perform on Sunday, October 22 at 3:00 p.m. on the Westermann Stage, Concert Hall in the Adelphi University Performing Arts Center (PAC), 1 South Ave, Garden City, New York.

Multiple Grammy winner Bruce Hornsby’s work displays a creative iconoclasm that has been a constant in the artist’s two-and-a-half decade recording career. His commercial stock soared early on, when “The Way It Is” – the title track of his 1986 debut album – became one of the most popular songs on American radio. Despite his early mainstream successes, Hornsby has pursued a more personal, idiosyncratic musical path, focusing on projects that sparked his creative interest, including collaborations with the Grateful Dead, Spike Lee, Ricky Skaggs, Don Henley, Ornette Coleman, Bob Dylan, Bela Fleck, Bonnie Raitt, Pat Metheny and Robbie Robertson. Hornsby’s performance will offer a glimpse of a restless spirit who continues to push forward into exciting new musical terrain.
