Great writing Paul, very nice read.


wow! Thank you so much for having a mind and heart better equipped to do the job than your pen-in-the-dark are. I'm going to find her site and look for her return to the area - or is she here? I haven't looked yet! I'd go to hear her in a heartbeat. I hope your health is a match for your energy and spirit and generosity.

Writing with virtually no help from my notes was challenging. A friend invited me to come to the concert - and helped me reconstruct the playlist.
A Susan Werner live performance in a place with good acoustics showcases the range of her impressive voice better than on her CDs. Her cabaret style songs are best examples of the emotional wallop her voice can convey. Her concerts in April stretch from San Francisco to White River Junction, VT, which looks as close as she'll be to Boston for a while.
Keep checking her website for upcoming concerts - I know I will. (http://www.susanwerner.com/)

Yes, that 'epk' electronic press kit on her web site shows the range of Werner's styles and her visceral but charming commitment to the music she sings. That's the Susan Werner who showed up in Natick. She's the real deal.

Yes I've heard Patty Larkin in person, wonderful musician/songwriter, great amusing stage presence, terrific voice. I'll bet she put on a good show...true?

This was a remarkably luminous concert. The dynamics between Susan,stand up bass player Gail Ann Dorsey and percussionist Trina Hamlin and between the band and the audience were especially rich, spontaneous, and totally authentic.
This was more than a concert, it was an unforgettable experience.
