If your idea of a folk singer/songwriter concert is a bunch of people clapping politely after songs, and then sitting quietly while the performer says things like “This next song is about …”, well, you’ve never seen a Cheryl Wheeler concert before. Cheryl’s concerts are more like what you would find at a comedy club than a folk concert. She will tell a story that has you rolling in the aisles, and then sing a song that leaves you wiping tears from your eyes. She will talk about some serious current event, and then sing a song that will have you howling with laughter. This is why she sells out two Iron Horse shows every year.


Your chance to win a pair of tickets to see Cheryl Wheeler on Friday, January 14th,  7pm at the Iron Horse Music Hall in Northampton, MA is as easy as 1-2-3 (4)!  To win simply:

  13. “Unworthy”–hilarious, poignant, a great song for when you feel like you’re supposed to do it all–but can’t!
    Nell Lake

  14. I will suggest “Mahalo” by Laurie Birkner. thank you for offering these opportunities!

  15. Am I allowed to repeat what has already been said? Ghandi/Buddha may be my favorite song from any artist, especially the “alternate” verse. And the Potato song always cracks me up! I was singing it to myself just the other day while walking the dog and laughing to myself. I was the crazy laughing dog-walking lady!
    Amherst, MA

  16. Cheryl Wheeler is AMAZING – she’s somehow able to be both funny and poignant all in one breath. So many of her songs are my favorites, but I’ll go with Ghandi/Buddha as my pick for a community playlist!

  17. I love anything by Cheryl, but my favorite all time by her is Arrow. So heart wrenchingly beautiful, it takes my breath away every time.

  18. Love Cheryl Wheeler. Great giveaway, as always!

    Our five year old’s favorite song right now is, Jeremiah Was a Bullfrog.
    Great song!
