SuccessWorks Rocks! featuring Bruce Hornsby

  • Bruce Hornsby WUT 1160x700

Bruce Hornsby’s work displays a creative iconoclasm that’s 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, Justin Vernon, Bonnie Raitt, Pat Metheny, and Robbie Robertson.

Show opener and Wisconsin native Phil Cook draws inspiration from his childhood heroes. He’s performed with many of them, including Mavis Staples, Bruce Hornsby, John Prine, Amy Ray and the Blind Boys of Alabama.

Proceeds from the show benefit SuccessWorks at the College of Letters & Science, a groundbreaking new center for personal and professional development transforming the way UW-Madison prepares liberal arts students for career success.
