Susan Werner

. June 28, 2012.

Susan Werner’s fan base is not comprised of life-long Republicans. They’d be unlikely to applaud her song, “The Night We Won the War,” about Barack Obama’s election. Evangelical Christians are also unlikely to buy tickets to see her concerts. Not when they learn she writes what she calls “agnostic gospel songs.”
But she’s probably OK with that. Those likely exceptions still leave plenty of people who love her music. Besides, she’s not primarily about thumbing her nose at those with whom she disagrees. During her last visit to the Ark, she featured mostly love songs; ones she has written as well as tunes from Broadway musicals and classics from the Great American Songbook. Accompanying herself expertly on piano and guitar, she sings convincingly, by turns a crooner and a belter, giving exactly what each song demands. Add in her charming, often comic between-song monologues and you’ve got the whole entertainment package. 8pm. $20. 316 S. Main St. 734-761-1818. www.theark.org
