About this event

Cheryl's songs are often emotional portraits of people, leaving you with the impression that you know the characters. You find yourself being dragged into the song rather than standing outside and observing. Other songs by Cheryl are hilarious situation comedies.

From her songs you can get glimpses about her childhood: She was a Tom-Boy ( I Know This Town ) who loved music ( Music In My Room ).

You can also get glimpses of her adulthood: Her move to New England ( Northern Girl ), her neighbors ( Quarter Moon and His Home Town ), her surroundings ( When Fall Comes to New England, and The Storm ), and her time on the road ( Rainy Road Into Atlanta, Lighting Up the Mighty Mississippi, and Sylvia Hotel ).

But the songs that touch people the most are her songs about relationships, such as Arrow, Aces, and But the Days and Nights Are Long (formerly "Boulder Hotel Room"), and Gandhi/Buddha.

Cheryl's funny songs are legendary. Unfortunately, the early ones were almost never recorded. One notable exception was Estate Sale for which a video was made. Cheryl has always said that doing a funny song live is quite different than recording one. I guess enough of us have complained, because starting with Mrs. Pinocci's Guitar funny songs started appearing on the albums. For some reason, Cheryl's funny songs stay funny. I know of other artists who do funny songs, but after a few listens, I grow tired of them. During a show, I find myself laughing at jokes I've heard many times before. She is a natural story teller and a gifted comedienne, so each telling is fresh and often slightly different.
