Tobin Center for the Performing Arts presents Susan Werner
Over the course of her 25-year touring career, Susan Werner has built a reputation as one of the country’s most compelling live performers. With formidable chops on guitar and piano along with a graduate degree in voice performance, her shows are a one-woman master class in musicianship.
Her songs are noted for their poetry and sharp wit, and also for their astonishing stylistic range. She’s written songs in the style of Gershwin and Cole Porter ("I Can’t Be New," 2004), gospel music ("The Gospel Truth," 2007), traditional Cuban "son" ("An American In Havana," 2016), and New Orleans junk piano (NOLA, 2019). In 2014 she composed the music and lyrics to the musical theater score Bull Durham, The Musical (MGM). She just released her latest recording of original songs, The Birds of Florida, in January 2022.
