Her Auditorium Theatre concert will feature songs spanning Werner's nine-album career including her latest album, "Kicking the Beehive," an 11-song collection of provocative, poignant, original work that combines roots of American folk, blues and country music. On top of that, she will be performing her classic Chicago-centric song, "Give Me Chicago Any Day" The Chicago Tribune describes Werner as "a triply blessed artist who sings adroitly, plays the piano smartly and best of all, writes songs of genuine distinction and high craft."
Throughout the course of her colorful career, Werner has cultivated a reputation as a daring and innovative songwriter with a sassy, upbeat live show. She weaves the old with the new to create altogether new genres of music, keeping audiences guessing and laughing. Her work infuses traditional music styles and methods with her unmistakable contemporary worldview, constantly challenging listeners to experience music from a fresh and unexpected perspective.
The stage is transformed into an intimate 1940s-style music club with tables, cocktail service and light appetizers, complete with a magnificent view of the Auditorium Theatre's Louis Sullivan designed interior from a vantage point typically reserved for performers.
