Vikesh Kapoor Sings For the Working Man
The singer-songwriter, whose stripped-down music has been compared to Woody Guthrie and Bob Dylan, looks to lift the spirits. On Saturday, April 1, Kapoor offers a late-night set in the Bing Concert Hall Studio. With his commitment to political songcraft, Kapoor took the world by storm in 2014 with his debut album, The Ballad of Willy Robbins, and has centered his music on the struggles for a good life endured by the working class. "At its best," he says, "music is a means of expression that transcends the superficial world and cuts right to the core."
