Susan Werner prepares for the Outpost stage.
Performing for Outpost in the Burbs in the new year is Susan Werner, taking the stage on Friday, March 27 at 8 p.m.
According to the Outpost in the Burbs website, “Susan Werner inspires accolades. ‘One of the most innovative songwriters working today,’ said the Chicago Tribune. ‘(Werner is) a songwriter and musician who is in such complete command of her gifts that it’s almost scary,’ said the All Music Guide. ‘When it comes to crafting a song, Ms. Werner’s only peers are Jimmy Webb and Paul Simon,’ said No Depression. ‘Susan Werner, a clever songwriter and an engaging performer, brings literacy and wit back to popular song,’ said the The New Yorker. ‘Vulnerability has rarely been so witty or concise in modern song,’ said the Boston Herald. ‘Always an impressive songwriter, Werner continues to compose sharp, funny, compassionate lyrics, a gift rare enough to set her apart,’ said the The Washington Post. ‘The classically trained and jazz inspired singer is redefining the genre and winning admirers around the country,’ said the Phildelphia Inquirer.”
Tickets for the Susan Werner show are $22 and can be purchased in person at Keil’s Pharmacy, Terra Tea and Studio042. They can also be purchased online at ticketleap.com. The show is from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m., so be sure to get there with plenty of time for parking.
