The Last Southern Gentlemen

Suzanne Vega and Duncan Sheik

Saturday, November 14 - 2015

Suzanne Vega emerged as a leading figure of the folk-music revival of the early 1980s. In performances devoid of outward drama that nevertheless convey deep emotion, Vega’s distinctive voice has been described as “plaintive but disarmingly powerful.” She has sold more than seven million albums and has been nominated for seven Grammy awards. Her song “Luka” about child abuse was a surprise hit and won MTV’s Best Female Video Award. Visit suzannevega.com.

An American singer-songwriter and composer, Duncan Sheik’s self-titled 1996 debut album remained on the Billboard Hot 100 for a record-setting 55 straight weeks. “In the decade of grunge, diva anthems, and the Macarena, Sheik’s 1996 breakthrough single ‘Barely Breathing’ was contemplative and literate” (NPR). Sheik has since composed the music for the Tony Award-winning Broadway hit Spring Awakening and won a Grammy award for the Spring Awakening cast album. His recent musical thriller American Psycho premiered in London in 2014, and this fall, Sheik will release Legerdemain, his first album of original material since 2009’s concept album Whisper House.
