MIDWEST SINGER-SONGWRITER SARA THOMSEN IN CONCERT

SARA THOMSENMARCH 5th @ 7pmFoxborough Universalist Church6 Bird StreetFoxborough, MA

FOXBORO – Award-winning singer-songwriter Sara Thomsen will be performing a benefit concert Saturday, March 5 at 7 p.m., at the Foxborough Universalist Church, 6 Bird Street, Foxborough, MA.

Sara Thomsen is a singer-songwriter with a soulful voice, poetic lyrics, and haunting melodies. Thomsen’s home base is in the Lake Superior region of Duluth/Superior, where she has been dubbed in the local press as “one of Northern Minnesota’s best kept secrets.” She is the founder and artistic director of the non-audition Echoes of Peace Choir and the vocal trio, Three Altos.

Her music comes from the heart, and that’s where it takes you. With a voice richer than the best mid-west soil, her songs carry you inward and outward—in, to the particulars of your own life, and out into the shared humanity of us all. Her performance style is easygoing and full of humor and depth, capturing the audience’s full engagement. Thomsen’s music gently enfolds and unfolds the listener.

With four solo albums to her credit, Sing Out! Magazine declared Sara Thomsen’s latest release, Everything Changes, “a powerful collection from a grounded talent.” The album is an intimate portrayal of the heart breaking open and apart, tumbling through transformation with elegance and grace

Highlights include “A Woman’s Place,” a song commissioned for Women’s History Month, and “I Remember These,” a poignant collection of childhood memories and tribute to Thomsen’s grandmother. Songs on earlier releases have won numerous accolades and awards, including winner of the Minnesota Folk Festival’s New Folk Songwriting Contest for “Irene Marguerite” and “Keepin’ the Peace” off her By Breath CD. “Is It For Freedom,” off Fertile Ground, won a Top Finalist award in the Public Domain Foundation’s national Music To Life Contest, created by Noel Paul Stookey (of “Peter, Paul and Mary”) to recognize songs of sociopolitical concern.

To hear some of Thomsen’s music go to her website at www.sarathomsen.com

Thomsen’s concert kicks off a special weekend at the Foxborough Universalist Church as it celebrates the ordination of its minister, Katie Lawson on Sunday, March 6.

Proceeds from the concert benefit the Foxborough Universalist Church.

Tickets for this Coffeehouse on the Common are $15 for adults, $10 for seniors and students, and free for those under 6 with an adult.
