Troubadour Concert Series: Susan Werner and Natalia Zukerman

April 13 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

$36

A special Saturday performance at the Troubadour by master songwriters Susan Werner and Natalia Zukerman.

Over the course of her twenty-five year touring career, Susan Werner has built a reputation as one of the country’s most compelling live performers. With formidable chops on guitar (she began playing at age 5) and piano (she was a guest on Marian McPartland’s Piano Jazz) along with a graduate degree in voice performance, her shows are a one-woman masterclass 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). Her latest recording of original songs, The Birds of Florida, took flight in January 2022.

Natalia Zukerman is an international performer and recording artist. Glide Magazine wrote, “Some of her contemporaries have difficulty negotiating that tenuous line between aggression and eloquence, but Zukerman’s somewhat wry sense of humor, impeccable timing and thoughtful observation coalesce and she’s able to be assertive without coming across as combative.” She has shared the stage with or opened for beloved artists such as Ani DiFranco, Shawn Colvin, Dar Williams, Janis Ian, Nanci Griffith, Susan Werner, and Richard Thompson. Her music has appeared in hit shows like “The L Word” and “Chasing Life.” She scored the independent film “The Arch of Titus” for Yeshiva University and contributed to the Harvard online course, “Poetry in America.” Zukerman has been around music all her life: Her father is pre-eminent violinist Pinchas Zukerman, and her mother is renowned flutist Eugenia Zukerman. She has recorded eight independent albums.
