Cheryl WheelerHave you ever seen Cheryl Wheeler at the Freight? If so, you already know. She tells hilarious stories, sings heartbreakingly beautiful songs, and makes an unforgettable connection with her audience. Singout! Magazine calls her a “rare artist” and praises her “strong poetry, complex melodies, and clever wit.” According to the website acousticmusic.com, “She has a rare gift for writing songs with lush melodies and lyrics of incredible beauty. On the other hand, she is a master of quick wit. Her observational humor has brought us a number of songs describing the utter ridiculousness of the world around us. And then there is the richness of her silky alto telling us what lies in the deepest recesses of her songwriter’s heart.” Her songs have been covered by Peter Paul & Mary, Kenny Loggins, Garth Brooks, Suzy Bogguss, Melanie, Bette Midler, Maura O'Connell, Kathy Mattea, and Holly Near, and she’s released eleven albums of her own, including her latest, Greetings: Cheryl Wheeler Live (Featuring Kenny White). She doesn’t venture out of New England all that often, so don’t miss this wonderful storyteller and musician.
