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, Vegaâ€™s distinctive voice has been described as â€œplaintive but disarmingly powerful.â€ She has sold more than seven million albums and has been nominated for seven Grammy awards. Her song â€œLukaâ€ about child abuse was a surprise hit and won MTVâ€™s Best Female Video Award. Visit suzannevega.com.
An American singer-songwriter and composer, Duncan Sheikâ€™s self-titled 1996 debut album remained on the Billboard Hot 100 for a record-setting 55 straight weeks. â€œIn the decade of grunge, diva anthems, and the Macarena, Sheikâ€™s 1996 breakthrough single â€˜Barely Breathingâ€™ was contemplative and literateâ€ (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 2009â€™s concept album Whisper House.
