Suzanne Sheridan “Standing Ovation” CD Release Party! – Oct. 1
It’s About Time!!
You know she can sing the music of Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, and many others. But now you can hear Suzanne Sheridan singing the music of Suzanne Sheridan. In the words of Carleigh Welsh, Marketing Director for the Levitt Pavilion, “At a time when we need to reflect, to hope, to grieve, to act, and sometimes just to exhale, Suzanne can give voice to these many feelings in a way that will provide comfort as well as inspiration, respite as well as revelation…. She has a magnetic and welcoming stage presence — and thank goodness she has a sense of humor!” That sense of humor comes out in her satirical musical tribute to the little ladies driving around Westport in their SUV’s.
Nine years in the making, First Folk Sunday is proud to present the official CD Release Party of Suzanne’s original song compilation, “Standing Ovation” so come join the party on Sunday October 1.
