BLOOMINGTON, Ill. – Singer songwriter Susan Werner will return to Illinois Wesleyan’s Blue Moon Coffeehouse Friday, Jan. 29. The performance will take place at 8 p.m. in the Young Main Lounge of the Memorial Center (104 E. University St., Bloomington).
Doors open at 7:30 p.m. and coffee, tea and light pastries will be available for purchase. Admission for students, faculty and staff is free with a valid IWU ID. Season tickets for the public are $10 and are currently available at The Garlic Press in uptown Normal (108 W. North St., Normal), through the telephone request line at (309) 556-3815, by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org and at the venue beginning at 6:00 p.m. on the night of the performance.
Called the “empress of the unexpected” by NPR Music, Werner is known for her ability to move between folk, jazz and pop genres. Her newest album release, Classics, showcases her talent as an arranger, as Werner delivers new versions of popular pop songs from the ‘60s and ‘70s such as Paul McCartney’s “Maybe I’m Amazed” and Marvin Gaye’s “Mercy Mercy Me.”
Werner’s concert at the Blue Moon Coffeehouse will be a mix of new and old songs from her nine albums and her current work on a blues collection.
