All New Susan Werner songs that celebrate the language, livelihood, characters and concerns of American Farmers.
Susan’s newest project contains twelve songs on the subject matter of farming, rural America, locavores, food safety, and the comic potential of herbicides. Werner grew up on a family farm in eastern Iowa, where her paretns still farm—and in “Hayseed”, she returns to the language and characters she knows best. She will tour with two sidemen and an array of farm props. The CD is slated for release Spring 2013
“Pay attention. Werner might just be the most original folk voice to emerge from the Plains since that Zimmerman kid. And funny, too.” Newsday, March 8 2013
