Susan Werner with Jim Trick
April 14 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm$20
Old Sloop Coffeehouse is proud to present a concert featuring Susan Werner Saturday, April 14, at 7:30 PM at the handicap-accessible First Congregational Church of Rockport, 12 School St.
Susan Werner composes skillful songs that effortlessly slide between folk, jazz, and pop, all delivered with sassy wit and classic Midwestern charm. Throughout her expansive career, boundless versatility has emerged as a hallmark of Werner’s talent, and has proven to be a quintessential ingredient of her engrossing musical persona. After writing twelve albums of songs in styles ranging from folk/rock to Tin Pan Alley to gospel, country and chamber music, what might a woman deemed by National Public Radio as “The Empress of the Unexpected” try next? Write a Broadway musical, of course. Which is just what Susan Werner has done, along with writer and director Ron Shelton (Tin Cup, White Men Can’t Jump); writing “Bull Durham, The Musical,” based on the beloved 1986 MGM film. The show had a successful run at the Alliance Theater in Atlanta, and is seeking an opening on Broadway.
Jim Trick brings real life perspective to his performance and an engaging and entertaining presence to the room. Joyful, sincere and magnetic are just a few of the words to describe Jim Trick. Boston has welcomed Jim with open arms, as a frequent guest lecturer at The Berklee College of Music and as a solo artist at iconic venues such as Club Passim, Godfrey Daniels, Caffe Lena, The Me&Thee Coffeehouse, Berklee’s Cafe 939 and the New Moon Coffeehouse.
