Grammy Award Winner Suzanne Vega Performed at Goddard College

MONTPELIER, VT – Sunday, July 29, Goddard College hosted the Grammy award-winning singer-songwriter Suzanne Vega. The concert was hosted under an outdoor pavilion on the beautiful campus of Goddard College in Plainfield, Vermont.

The event, presented by WGDR/WGDH Radio and part of the Goddard College Concert Series.

Widely regarded 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 when, accompanying herself on acoustic guitar, she sang what has been labeled contemporary folk or neo-folk songs of her own creation in Greenwich Village clubs. Since the release of her self-titled, critically acclaimed 1985 debut album, she has given sold-out concerts in many of the world’s best-known halls. In performances devoid of outward drama that nevertheless convey deep emotion,Vega sings in a distinctive, clear vibrato-less voice that has been described as “a cool, dry sandpaper-brushed near-whisper” and as “plaintive but disarmingly powerful.”
