Vega to perform at event gallery


January 12, 2012

BETHEL, NY — Tickets will be on sale starting on January 13 for a performance by Grammy® Award-winning songwriter Suzanne Vega at the Event Gallery at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts on Sunday, May 13 at 7:30 p.m.

Suzanne Vega emerged as a leading figure of the folk-music revival of the early 1980s when, accompanying herself on acoustic guitar, she sang what has been labeled contemporary folk or neo-folk songs of her own creation in Greenwich Village clubs. Since the release of her self-titled, critically acclaimed 1985 debut album, she has given sold-out concerts in many of the world’s best-known halls. In performances devoid of outward drama that nevertheless convey deep emotion, Vega sings in a distinctive, clear vibrato-less voice that has been described as “a cool, dry, sandpaper-brushed near-whisper” and as “plaintive but disarmingly powerful.”

Reserved tickets cost $49.75, and can be purchased at BethelWoodsCenter.org, Ticketmaster or by calling 800/745-3000. The Bethel Woods Box Office will be open on January 13 only for advance ticket sales.
