Cheryl Wheeler is a Narrows fave who moves seamlessly from outrageously funny to achingly beautiful. Cheryl’s performance is a fundraiser to benefit Everett: Company, Stage, and School. Friday Night Live’s Bertrand Laurence will be the opening act.
Cheryl Wheeler has to be seen to be appreciated. Nothing you’ve read and nothing you’ve heard from her albums prepares you for how good a performer she is.
You may not be familiar with Cheryl but you have probably heard her music. She is a highly respected songwriter by her peers, which can be seen by how many of them record her songs. Cheryl’s songs have been covered by artists as diverse as Dan Seals, Peter, Paul and Mary, Kenny Loggins, Garth Brooks, Suzy Bogguss, Melanie, Bette Midler, Maura O’Connell, Sylvia, Kathy Mattea, and Holly Near.
Bertrand Laurence is a French fingerstyle guitarist who came to singing too shy to ask others to sing his songs. Bertrand has been teaching and performing American guitar styles for half his life in the U.S. He is currently teaching Musical Improvisation at Everett's School and performs weekly with Everett's Friday Night Live.
