Singer Songwriter Fernandito Ferrer comes to Boston & Hartford for these one nite only appearances. He is the vanguard of the new breed of singer/songwriters from Latin America. Powerful and inspiring, with a giant voice and deep soul, Fernado Ferrer can move a listener to tears of joy. Join us for this solo appearance.
Fernando Antonio Ferrer Cruz has been a young pioneer among the new breed of singer-songwriters in Puerto Rico. He first appeared on stage in Lares ’97 and from then on has gotten himself known all around the Island and abroad. Originally from San German, Ferrer draws from the Nueva Trova giants of the ‘70s but has also developed his own language within his work. His percussive guitar technique and impressive vocal abilities together with the good use of subtle yet powerful melody and poetic imagery puts this small-towner’s music in a much wider context.
The use of the pop up store in Hartford is made possible by the City of Hartford’s Marketing, Events & Cultural Affairs Division who administers the iConnect program as well the Northland Investment Corporation.
