Ben Kieffer will chat with Werner to find out more about her new album Hayseed while she performs a live 50-minute set. This program is free and open to the public!
At age five, Werner made her debut playing guitar and singing at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Manchester, Iowa. She has released many albums since her childhood career, starting in 1993 with her self-released album Midwestern Saturday Night. Although she has been dubbed the "Empress of the Unexpected" and is known for changing her style, Werner decided to come back to her Iowa roots with Hayseed. Her new tour is devoted to her farm upbringing, featuring songs like "Bumber Crop" and "Herbicides."
