New York City folk artist Rachael Sage brings her unique combination of slightly unsettling yet soothing poetry and melody to the Smith Opera House at 8 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 20, as part of the theatre's Wild Women of the World Music Series.
Often compared to Ani Difranco and Tori Amos, pianist, singer-songwriter, poet and visual artist, Rachael Sage is a young East Village woman whose music combines craftsmanship with contemporary feminist sensibilities. A grand prize winner in the '01 John Lennon Songwriting Contest and first place winner in the '01 Great American Song Contest, Sage has toured both the U.S. and Europe consistently and has shared the stage with Ani Difranco, Eric Burdon, Sarah McLachlan and Melissa Ferrick.
Tickets are $7 general admission and $5 for students. They are available at the Smith Opera House box office, the HWS College Store and Area Records & Music.
The Wild Women of the World Music Series is co-sponsored by WEOS FM 89.7 and the HWS Office of Intercultural Affairs.
