About this event

I'm sorry, the Susan Werner concert has been postponed.  We will let you know when the new date is.   THANKS!

Susan Werner will perform at the Brunswick Unitarian Universalist Church on Saturday, June 3rd at 7:30 pm as part of the Concerts for a Cause series to raise money for the Brunswick Area Teen Center and Maine Family Planning. 

Susan Werner is a singer/songwriter, guitarist, and pianist who has been performing all over the country for over 20 years.. SUSAN WERNER composes skillful songs that effortlessly slide between folk, jazz, and pop, all delivered with sassy wit and classic Midwestern charm. Renowned as a charismatic performer, she’s known above all for challenging herself to conquer new styles every few years.  Werner is known for writing ambitious concept albums with subject matter and sounds to match.

One of the few songwriters to have been featured on legendary Marian McPartland’s NPR Piano Jazz, Werner indulges her considerable piano chops with riffs and grooves reminiscent of Dr. John, James Booker, Professor Longhair and Allen Toussaint.

Over the course of her colorful career, singer songwriter Susan Werner has cultivated a reputation as a daring and innovative songwriter with a killer live show. She boldly endeavors to weave old with new to create altogether new genres of music when existing ones do not suit her muse, and she regularly keeps audiences guessing and laughing simultaneously. Most of her work infuses traditional music styles and methods with her unmistakable contemporary worldview, constantly challenging listeners to experience music from a fresh and unexpected perspective.

From her 1995 major label debut, the folk/rock gem “Last of the Good Straight Girls,” to her 2004 collection of Tin Pan Alley styled originals “I Can’t Be New,” to her 2007 “agnostic gospel” hymnal “The Gospel Truth”, to 2013’s tribute to agriculture and her Iowa farm roots “Hayseed” to 2018’s Cuban flavored collection “An American In Havana” Werner’s creative restlessness has become her defining characteristic.
