Join us for an evening with acclaimed singer-songwriter and humorist Susan Werner and her sidekick Trina, in the intimate John & Nancy Hughes Theater.
Over the course of her twenty-five year career, Werner has built a reputation as one of the country’s most compelling live performers. Her audience can’t help but sing-along to her amusing and catchy melodies. Formidable on guitar (she began playing at age 5) and piano, Werner’s songs slide between folk, jazz, and pop, all delivered with sassy wit and classic Midwestern charm. With her unmistakable contemporary worldview, reflected in her poetic songwriting, Werner creates a fresh and unexpected experience for the listener, culminating in a show you don’t want to end.
Known for her engaging and energetic live show, Susan Werner continues her reign as one of the most bold and creative forces on the acoustic music scene today, dubbed by NPR as the “Empress of the Unexpected.”
