Susan is a singer/songwriter of boundless versatility, equally at home on guitar or piano. Her distinctive and highly crafted songwriting is liberally dosed with pockets of humor, wit, heartbreak, incisive social commentary and kick-ass rowdiness.
Susan’s performance at Roy’s Hall is sponsored in part by The Foodshed Alliance and The Community Supported Garden at Genesis Farm. The evening will feature an ample selection of tunes from her newest recorded project “Hayseed”. Werner grew up on a family farm in eastern Iowa, where her parents still farm — and in “Hayseed”, she returns to the language and characters she knows best. This ‘ag-centric’ show will contain songs on the subject matter of farming, rural America, locavores, food safety, and the comic potential of herbicides.
“It’s not enough to say she’s a brilliant, spectacular performer. She is pure genius in capturing the human experience and setting it to music. She’s also a chameleon, slipping seamlessly between cabaret, folk, gospel, classical and the blues.” -Source Media Group
