Suzanne Vega in Brighton | An Evening of New York Songs and Stories | 10th February 2022 | Theatre Royal Brighton, Brighton & Hove, East Sussex
Suzanne Vega inBrightonat Theatre Royal Brighton, on 10th February 2022 on An Evening of New York Songs and Stories, Suzanne Vega revisits some of her most New York-centric repertoire.
Suzanne Vega celebrates the release of An Evening of New York Songs and Stories (Cooking Vinyl) with a run of UK dates including this special performance at Theatre Royal Brighton.
Bearing the stamp of a masterful storyteller who ‘observes the world with a clinically poetic eye,’ Suzanne’s songs have always tended to focus on city life, ordinary people and real world subjects.
On An Evening of New York Songs and Stories, Vega revisits some of her most New York-centric repertoire in a stunning live recording on which she is backed by longtime guitarist, Gerry Leonard, bassist Jeff Allen and keyboardist Jamie Edwards. Recorded at New York City’s famed Café Carlyle in early 2019, the album includes both familiar songs like Luka and Tom’s Diner and deep cuts from her catalogue like Frank and Ava and Ludlow Street. The mix of repertoire also features New York Is My Destination from Lover, Beloved: Songs from an Evening with Carson McCullers, Vega’s one woman play about the Southern gothic novelist Carson McCullers, and a cover of her late friend Lou Reed’s ‘Walk on the Wild Side’.
Notably succinct and understated, Suzanne Vega’s work is immediately recognisable, as utterly distinct and thoughtful as it was when her voice was first heard on the radio over 30 years ago.
