k.d. lang at the State Theatre
On Wednesday, March 14, the audience at the State Theatre was blessed by the voice of an angel.
k.d. lang and her extraordinary band grabbed our hearts and souls, gave us goose bumps and chills as she performed Ingénue Redux, the 25th Anniversary Tour, presented by Sue McLean and associates. Her songs of love, longing, heartache and joy filled us with something we didn’t know was missing. One of the all-time great songstresses, her staggering otherworldly vocals swept over us and held us in awe for the entire show. Her rendition of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” had us mesmerized and exploding with a spontaneous standing ovation, the third one of the night. This was unquestionably a concert to remember. -David Goldstein

This duo performs original songs and tunes inspired by the classic hillbilly, country-duo and old-time musical traditions—and also mines this same repertoire for forgotten gems that deserve to be heard again.
Based in Soldiers Grove, WI, the Sapsuckers (Nikki Grossman, guitar, fiddle, and vocals; Joe Hart, guitar, mandolin, and vocals) perform frequent concerts, as well as square and contra dances, and they are known for the light touch and sense of humor they bring to their performance.
