Suzanne Vega To Celebrate Release New Album With Livestream On October 7

(SOUTH ORANGE, NJ) -- Music fans can enjoy An Evening of New York Songs and Stories with Suzanne Vega via a Livestream from Blue Note Jazz Club on Wednesday, October 7 at 9:00pm. The Grammy Award-winning artist will be celebrating the release of her new, career-spanning live album. The full-band set will feature the album’s New York-centric repertoire, honoring Vega’s long musical relationship with her city.

South Orange Performing Arts Center (SOPAC) is selling tickets to the event for $20. A portion of the proceeds from ticket sales will benefit SOPAC if the point of sale is initiated from the venue's website.  Users can also donate directly to support SOPAC who still needs help to cover operational costs until the venue can fully reopen.

Grammy Award-winning artist Suzanne Vega celebrates the release of her new, career-spanning live album, An Evening of New York Songs and Stories with a livestream event from New York’s iconic Blue Note Jazz Club. At the Blue Note, Vega will be joined by longtime guitarist Gerry Leonard, bassist Jeff Allen and keyboardist Jason Hart.

Recorded in early 2019, An Evening of New York Songs and Stories includes familiar songs like “Luka” and “Tom’s Diner” alongside deep cuts from her catalog like “Frank and Ava” and “Ludlow Street.” The mix of repertoire also features “New York Is My Destination” from Lover, Beloved: Songs from an Evening with Carson McCullers, Vega’s one-woman play about the Southern gothic novelist Carson McCullers. An Evening of New York Songs and Stories was produced by Leonard, mixed by Grammy Award-winning engineer Kevin Killen and mastered by Grammy Award winner Bob Ludwig.

Widely regarded as one of the foremost songwriters of her generation, Suzanne Vega emerged as a leading figure of the Folk-music revival of the early 1980s. Since the release of her self-titled, critically acclaimed 1985 debut album, her songs have become part of the contemporary music vernacular.
