Michael Cerveris Brings His Southern Roots To The Sheen Center

Michael Cerveris Brings His Southern Roots To The Sheen Center

To kick off the new year, the Sheen Center for Thought & Culture is kicking off a new music series; Convergences – Indie Artists Series. The goal of this collection of shows is to spotlight indie artists and performers whose work straddles the line between music and other forms of art in new and exciting ways.

This year’s talented guests split their time between the worlds of music and theater. They include Michael Cerveris, Lauren Worsham and Kyle Jarrow’s band Sky-Pony, Dan Mills and others.

The series was curated by Managing Director, Andrew Levine.

Tickets for the series will cost between $22 and $47, and can be found at the Sheen Center web- site.

Michael Cerveris’s musical journey began with his artistic upbringing in West Virginia by two Juilliard alumnus. He rocked Broadway as Tommy in The Who’s iconic musical and toured along with Pete Townshend on his Psychoderelict Tour. He played  the lead in Hedwig and the Angry Inch, bringing his punk and rock roots full circle. In New Orleans he took part in Cirque du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant, where he rediscovered his Southern roots.

Cerveris can boast three full-length solo albums, two Tony Awards, one for  his role as the homosexual father in Fun Home.

His pride is raising the puppy he rescued in New Orleans. He divides his time between New York City and New Orleans, and continues to dabble in between music, film, and theater, starring in star of The Good Wife, Fringe and Treme.

Cerveris returns to his southern roots as singer and songwriter with this acoustic based, folk influenced album recorded in New Orleans with a host of beloved local artists and friends. Lush string arrangements expand these songs reminiscent of classic 70s songwriters–Alex Chilton and Chris Bell, a southern Harry Nilsson, or Nick Drake with a dash of Van Dyke Parks–combined with echoes of more modern classic writers like Elliott Smith.

The recording features a host of New Orleans musicians, including Paul Sanchez, Anders Osborne, Mia Borders, Alex McMurray, Rod Hodges (the Iguanas), Sam and Jack Craft (Sweet Crude), Helen Gillet, Shamarr Allen and Linzay Young (Red Stick Ramblers) along with Kimberly Kaye and Kendall Meade (Mascott) with a very special appearance by Steve Gleason.

You can catch Michael this Thursday March 16th at 7:30 at The Sheen Centre.
