The Jeanne Rimsky Theater at Landmark on Main Street kicks off this season's Fabulous Folk Series with Ollabelle & Susan Werner.
Drawing comparisons to Crosby, Stills, and Nash, Ollabelle is gospel, celtic, Cajun and country, blues, bluegrass, and folk. The five person band includes Amy Helm, daughter of The Band's Levon, and combines deep roots with soaring, sophisticated harmonies. Susan Werner has six albums under her belt, an active touring career throughout the U.S. and a string of accolades from The Washington Post, The Village Voice and The New Yorker. As one of the defining artists of the folk music genre, her songs effortlessly slide between folk, jazz and pop, and are delivered with a sassy wit and classic Midwestern charm.
The Fabulous Folk Series is hosted by WFUV DJ John Platt, and sponsored by WFUV Radio, Frank Ullman and Greenberg Traurig, LLP with additional program sponsorship from Harding Real Estate and Wachovia Bank.
