Susan Werner

Naked Soul

Friday, July 7, 2017
7:00 PM–8:30 PM

Susan Werner composes songs that effortlessly slide between folk, jazz, and pop, all delivered with sassy wit and classic Midwestern charm. Throughout her career, boundless versatility has emerged as a hallmark of Werner’s work and has proven to be a quintessential ingredient of her musical persona. Werner returns to the Rubin Museum after several previous sold-out concerts.

“One of the most innovative songwriters working today.” —Chicago Tribune

“Susan Werner, a clever songwriter and an engaging performer, brings literacy and wit back to popular song.” —The New Yorker

About Naked Soul

Naked Soul presents performances from some of the country’s top singer/songwriters without microphones or amplifiers, as if the music were, acoustically speaking, naked. The musicians in the series draw upon the universal themes inherent in Himalayan art—spirituality, peace, tolerance, wisdom, compassion—on select Friday evenings.

Presented with Music Without Borders.

Musical performances at the Rubin Museum are made possible by the Carlo and Micól Schejola Foundation.

Yamaha is the official piano of the Rubin Museum of Art.
