Sara Thomsen In Concert

November 15 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

singer, songwriter, folk music

“Thomsen’s soulful voice, poetic lyrics and unforgettable melodies cut through to the heart and the soul of human experience,” proclaims the Minnesota Women’s Press.

With a voice rich as the best mid-west soil, Sara Thomsen’s 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 engagement. Sara’s music gently enfolds and unfolds the listener.

Somewhere to Begin is Sara Thomsen’s most recent solo album. “The kind of music she’s making is well-crafted, sung beautifully, and recorded immaculately,” states the Duluth News Tribune review. “Fans of Joan Baez and Peter, Paul and Mary might want to check this out.” The album is “deep and well written” proclaims The Reader, with “excellent songwriting and storytelling.” Thomsen’s song “Precious Waters” received a Woody Guthrie Songwriting Award.

In addition to her solo work, Sara is a weaver of song and community singing. At concerts, conferences, classrooms, workshops, retreats, jails, places of prayer, and lines of protest, to be with Sara is to want to sing. Increasing wonder and awareness, deepening spiritual connection, and widening social engagement through song is at the heart of her work. Sara’s ability to get people singing magically transforms gatherings into communities empowered with possibility.
