Welsh singer-songwriter Judith Owen is known to American and English audiences as the voice of Richard Thompson’s albums 1,000 Years of Popular Music and Cabaret of Souls. A pianist possessed of superbly crystalline folk-jazz vocal pipes, Owen has a treasure box of cleverly lyricized and musically edgy material to draw from, and while on the surface it resides mainly in your standard territory of love and loss, dreams and despair, and life and death, she pulls it off with such intelligence, wise-cracking good humor and outstanding musicianship that an evening spent with this charismatic performer is like a night at the theatah. She’ll highlight material from Ebb & Flow, a love letter to the 1970s Laurel Canyon scene, along with the more introspective Some Kind of Comfort and her recent Somebody’s Child, accompanied by renowned bassist Leland Sklar.
