Susan Werner
7:30 p.m. Thursday. Opera House at Boothbay Harbor, 86 Townsend Ave., $30.
Singer-songwriter Susan Werner has released upwards of 15 albums since her 1993 debut “Midwestern Saturday Night.” Her most recent is last year’s “Flyover Country,” which crosses over into Americana and country and features a co-write with John Gorka in the form of the twangy, old-timey tune “Wine Bottles.” The Chicago Tribune calls her “one of the most innovative songwriters working today.” Hear her for yourself on Thursday night.
