UUCB Concerts for a Cause: HEATHER MASSE
The UUCB Concerts for a Cause series presents Heather Masse and Jed Wilson on Saturday, March 31, 2018 at 7:30 pm at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Brunswick, 1 Middle Street, Brunswick.

Maine native Heather Masse is well-known to audiences as a regular guest on the NPR radio show A Prairie Home Companion, both as a solo performer and as a member of the Billboard-charting folk supergroup, The Waylin Jennys.  On the show, Heather has collaborated with artists such as Elvis Costello, Wynton Marsalis, Sheryl Crow, Renee Fleming, and Emmylou Harris.  She has also performed in many venues and with other popular groups such as the bluegrass band The Wayfaring Strangers on NPR's World Cafe, and at Bostons Symphony Hall with the Boston Pops Orchestra.

For this concert, Heather joins forces with jazz pianist Jed Wilson.  Heather and Jed met as jazz students at the New England Conservatory of Music and have been performing together for more than 10 years. Heather's background is steeped in the jazz tradition, which informs her distinct approach to singing folk, pop and bluegrass.  

In 2008, Ms. Masse released Many Moons, an EP of jazz-inspired folk duets with Mr. Wilson. Jed also played on Heathers first full-length solo album Bird Song. Her solo debut on Red House Records, showcased her luscious alto voice and her superb songwriting. The title track Bird Song won her 1st prize at the International Acoustic Music Awards, and in 2012 she also won a prestigious Juno Award for Bright Morning Stars, her latest recording with The Wailin Jennys.

Masse exhibits impeccable phrasing and a lush sound that suggests the sensuousness of Sophie Milman shot through with somber, Sarah Vaughan threads.  Jazz Times
