WITH LEA MORRIS
Heralded by the Chicago Tribune as “one of the most innovative songwriters working today,” Susan Werner composes songs that effortlessly slide between folk, jazz, and pop—all delivered with sassy wit and classic Midwestern charm. Throughout her expansive 20-year career, the hallmark of Werner’s work has been boundless versatility. She continues to explore and conquer new musical styles, including a Broadway musical score in 2017. As charismatic as she is inventive, Werner brings engaging authenticity to the stage as she performs from her impressively eclectic catalog.
Opening the show is local singer-songwriter Lea Morris. Morris, who took home the 2017 Bernard/Ebb Songwriting Awards Grand Prize, grew up singing with her mother and uncle’s a cappella group, the Jones Family Gospel Singers. An alumni of Strathmore’s Artist in Residence program, Morris has shared the stage with the likes of Mavis Staples, Dar Williams, and Anthony Hamilton and performed at the area’s most prestigious venues including Strathmore, The Kennedy Center, The Birchmere, and Wolf Trap.
