Cheryl Wheeler and Willa Mamet & Paul Miller at Next Stage


Date & Time: 
Sep 9 2017 - 7:30pm

Next Stage Arts and Twilight Music present
contemporary folk singer/songwriter and comedienne extraordinaire Cheryl
Wheeler
, plus Americana duo Willa Mamet and Paul Miller.

Cheryl Wheeler
It has
always seemed as if there were two Cheryl Wheelers, with fans of the New
England songwriter relishing watching the two tussle for control of the
microphone. There is poet-Cheryl, writer of some of the prettiest, most
alluring and intelligent ballads on the modern folk scene. And there is her
evil twin, comic-Cheryl, a militant trend defier and savagely funny social critic.
As the poet and comic forces join, taking their separate turns and melding into
the same artistic vision, Wheeler emerges as a delightful, gifted and
openhearted performer.

Poet-Cheryl
writes achingly honest songs of love and loss. Contrasting the prosaic
landscapes of her native small-town America with the hopelessly rootless life
of the traveling performer, she touches the common chords with any who feel the
tug between our busy, noisome times and the timeless longing for simplicity and
silence. Her deceptively plain-spun songs have been hits for such mainstream
stars as Suzy Bogguss and Dan Seals, and have been recorded by the likes of
Bette Midler, Maura O’Connell, Peter Paul and Mary, Kenny Loggins, Holly Near
and Garth Brooks. Comic-Cheryl comes on like Groucho in a housecoat--a fiercely
everyday woman with a barbed-wire tongue. Shredding the mores of our gossipy,
greedy, trend-obsessed culture, Wheeler always aims enough darts at herself to
never seem sanctimonious.

Vermont
and California-based Willa Mamet and Paul Miller play a mix of Americana, folk,
country and grassy soul music. Over the past 40 years, Paul has performed with
with Coco and the Lonesome Road Band, Bluebird, Andy Shapiro, Breakaway and the
Bluegrass Gospel Project. Willa grew up making music with her family and
community around Randolph, VT, and has been singing with Paul for nearly
fifteen years. Together they have won the Vermont Times Argus “Tammy” Award for
Best New Album in both 2013 and 2015.
