Susan Werner

May 6, 2017 • 8:00 p.m.

Sassy wit meets classic Midwestern charm in the persona of Susan Werner, otherwise known as the “empress of the unexpected” (National Public Radio). With a style and repertoire that slides easily between folk, jazz and pop, Werner’s music and performances take on a wry and philosophical stance. As a fixture of the folk scene for more than 20 years, Werner has led a multifaceted career, which has produced a collection of provocative, poignant originals infused with the rustic roots of American folk, blues, and country rhythms. Werner performs with a personable yet refined demeanor, welcoming listeners to indulge in insightful lyrics and thought-provoking songs.

Tickets: Regular $32; Student $27; Child $20
