Laura Veirs in concert Friday, September 29

27 September 2023

Internationally renowned songwriter (and Carleton alum), Laura Veirs ’97, will perform a set of original songs featuring her voice and fingerstyle nylon guitar. The concert will take place at 7:00 p.m. on Friday, September 29 in Kracum Performance Hall, located in the Weitz Center for Creativity.  She will play a range of material from her catalog of 13 albums.

Veirs was a Geology major at Carleton and also studied Mandarin Chinese.  After a stint in the Carleton all-woman punk band Rair Kx, her taste turned more toward  older country and folk music.  Her wide-ranging tastes have led to collaborations with stellar musicians including Bill Frisell, Bela Fleck, k.d. lang and Neko Case.  She has released numerous studio albums and received acclaim from publications across the country.

This event is free and open to the public. No ticket or reservation is needed to attend.
