Leading women of country and jazz at the Iron Horse; Suzy Bogguss Thu. 8/12, Jane Monheit Group Fri. 8/13

Renowned country singer/songwriter Suzy Boggus performs at the Iron Horse on Thursday, August 12th at 7PM
While ingenuity and integrity are the hallmark of a musical career that spans two decades, thirteen studio albums, and countless miles on the road, it's the spontaneous showmanship of Suzy Bogguss’s live performance that truly brings the talent and versatility of Grammy winning country artist to the forefront. Eight of her singles have cracked country music's top 5. Her songs have been heard on television shows and in commercials. She has performed on many national television shows including: In Performance At The White House (PBS), A Capitol 4th (PBS), Austin City Limits, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Live With Regis And Kelly, and The View. Suzy is a frequent guest on National Public Radio's A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor.

Jazz singer extraordinaire Jane Monheit and her group play the Iron Horse on Friday, August 13th at 7PM
Jane Monheit is one of the great young voices of jazz and traditional pop. Her professional career began at age 20 after winning the first runner-up prize at the 1998 Thelonious Monk Institute vocal competition. Shortly thereafter she began work on her first album, which came out in 2000. Her seventh and most recent album, “The Lovers, The Dreamers And Me,” is a sumptuously sung passionate song cycle of 13 tracks by songwriters past and present whom Monheit greatly admires. Said Time Magazine of Monheit, “Jane Monheit can’t miss. She has, in a word, everything.”

Tickets for both shows are available at Northampton Box Office, 76 Main Street, 413-586-8686, and online at
