Sara Thomsen lights up the stage in the folk tradition of such luminaries as Joan Baez, Pete Seeger, Holly Near, Ronnie Gilbert and Peter, Paul, and Mary. Her performance style is easygoing and full of humor and depth. She has four solo albums to her credit. Sing Out magazine declared her latest release Everything Changes ,” a powerful collection from a grounded talent. In addition to her solo work Sara is a weaver of song and community singing. At concerts, conferences, classrooms, jails, and lines of protest, to be with Sara is to want to sing.
