  • This event has passed.

Celebrated as one of the most brilliant songwriters of her generation, Suzanne Vega emerged as a leading figure of the folk music revival of the early 1980s. With a distinctive, clear vibrato-less voice that has been described as “a cool, dry sandpaper, brushed near-whisper” and as “plaintive but disarmingly powerful,” Vega has made such songs as “Luka” and “Tom’s Diner” hits among generations of fans. In this performance, Vega mixes classic and new work, reflecting her ongoing creative explorations.

Washington Performing Arts performances at Sixth & I are made possible by the Abramson Family Foundation and by an anonymous gift in appreciation of Douglas Wheeler’s continuing efforts on behalf of Washington Performing Arts.
