Her spellbinding songs are slow-release works of craft and catharsis told through clever lyrics, polished phrases and delicious sarcasm. Songwriter and singer, Marc Cohn combines the precision of a brilliant tunesmith with the passion of a great soul man. He’s a natural storyteller, balancing the exuberant with the poignant, and able to distill universal truth out of his often romantic, drawn-from-life tales. The Grammy-winning artists behind such classics as “Sunny Came Home” and “Walking in Memphis” will leave the audience spellbound in what is sure to be a great night of music.
