*Susan Werner* with Matt Nakoa
*March 12th*, $27
Favorite Susan Werner returns to the Circle of Friends Coffeehouse on Saturday, March 12th at 8:00PM. She has cultivated a reputation as a daring and innovative songwriter with a killer live show that endeavors to weave old with new to create altogether new genres of music when existing ones do not suit her muse. With nine albums under her belt, an active touring career throughout the U.S., and a string of accolades from the likes of The Washington Post, The Village Voice and The New Yorker, Susan Werner has become one of the defining artists of the folk music genre. Her songs effortlessly slide between folk, jazz and pop, and are delivered with a sassy wit and classic midwestern charm. http://www.susanwerner.com/
