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. Thomsenâ€™s home base is in the Lake Superior region of Duluth/Superior, where she has been dubbed in the local press as â€œone of Northern Minnesotaâ€™s best kept secrets.â€ 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 outwardâ€”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 audienceâ€™s full engagement. Thomsenâ€™s music gently enfolds and unfolds the listener.
With four solo albums to her credit, Sing Out! Magazine declared Sara Thomsenâ€™s latest release, Everything Changes, â€œa powerful collection from a grounded talent.â€ The album is an intimate portrayal of the heart breaking open and apart, tumbling through transformation with elegance and grace
Highlights include â€œA Womanâ€™s Place,â€ a song commissioned for Womenâ€™s History Month, and â€œI Remember These,â€ a poignant collection of childhood memories and tribute to Thomsenâ€™s grandmother. Songs on earlier releases have won numerous accolades and awards, including winner of the Minnesota Folk Festivalâ€™s New Folk Songwriting Contest for â€œIrene Margueriteâ€ and â€œKeepinâ€™ the Peaceâ€ off her By Breath CD. â€œIs It For Freedom,â€ off Fertile Ground, won a Top Finalist award in the Public Domain Foundationâ€™s national Music To Life Contest, created by Noel Paul Stookey (of â€œPeter, Paul and Maryâ€) to recognize songs of sociopolitical concern.
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.
