Main Series

The Google hit that points to Cheryl Wheeler’s website reads “Singer, Songwriter, and Comedienne.” What’s not to like? She has been performing and recording for more than four decades (a baker’s dozen albums), and her songs have been covered by a range of artists: Suzy Boguss, Garth Brooks, Kenny Loggins, Kathy Mattea, Holly Near, Peter,
Paul, and Mary, among others.

Cheryl’s keyboard accompanist, Kenny White, will play an opening set.

“Imagine a performer with the songwriting whimsy of a Randy Newman, the soul of a Joan Armatrading, the vocal pyrotechnics of a Diane Schuur and the wry humor (and cluttered look) of a Linda Ellerbee. Too much to ask for? Maybe even too bizarre to imagine? Well, she exists, her name is Cheryl Wheeler. . . .” –Don Heckman, Los Angeles Times

“Beautiful, finger-picked tales in the vein just to the lighter, less twangy side of Mary Chapin Carpenter.” –Jeremy Simon, The Know

“Wheeler’s songs never have a sameness about them. While she writes of themes as old as time, as the saying goes–life, love lost and found, nature–her lyrics are always fresh and unique. Her melodies not only fit her words and the moods of those words completely, but they stand apart from each other.” –Maureen Brennan, Driftwood
