Snap Scene: Suzanne Vega – Palais Theatre – 3rd August 2018

Widely regarded as one of the most brilliant songwriters of her generationSuzanne Vega emerged as a leading figure of the folk-music revival of the early 1980’s.  With just an acoustic guitar, she sang what has been labeled contemporary folk or neo-folk songs of her own creation in Greenwich Village clubs.  The release of her self-titled, critically acclaimed debut album in 1985 saw the single ‘Marlene on the Wall’ launch her long-spanning career.  Since then, she has sold over 7 million albums and has been nominated for 7 Grammy awards.   The other two big songs, from her breakthrough 1987 album Solitude Standing, ‘Tom’s Diner’ and ‘Luka’ were Top 10 US hits.   These tracks also made an impact on the international charts and continue to be on radio playlists around the world to this day.
