Please contact the Office of Events and Summer Programs at email@example.com or 725-3433 with any questions.

Back by popular demand, Heather Masse and Jed Wilson return to the UUCB Concerts for a Cause series on Saturday, March 14, 2020 at 7:30 pm at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Brunswick, 1 Middle Street, Brunswick.
Maine native Heather Masse is well-known to audiences as a regular guest on the NPR radio show “A Prairie Home Companion,” both as a solo performer and as a member of the Billboard-charting folk supergroup, The Waylin’ Jennys. On the show, Heather has collaborated with artists such as Elvis Costello, Wynton Marsalis, Sheryl Crow, Renee Fleming, and Emmylou Harris. She has also performed in many venues and with other popular groups such as the bluegrass band The Wayfaring Strangers on NPR’s World Cafe, and at Boston’s Symphony Hall with the Boston Pops.
For this concert, Heather joins forces with jazz pianist Jed Wilson. Heather and Jed met as jazz students at the New England Conservatory of Music and have been performing together for more than 10 years. Heather’s background is steeped in the jazz tradition, which informs her distinct approach to singing folk, pop and bluegrass.
Ms. Masse has released 2 CD’s of jazz-inspired folk duets with Mr. Wilson. The title track of her first solo CD “Bird Song” won her 1st prize at the International Acoustic Music Awards. She also won a prestigious Juno Award for “Bright Morning Stars,” her latest recording with The Wailin’ Jennys.
“Masse exhibits impeccable phrasing and a lush sound that suggests the sensuousness of Sophie Milman shot through with somber, Sarah Vaughan threads.” — Jazz Times
Here’s a sample of Heather and Jed performing “Crazy.”
Two-thirds of the proceeds from this concert will benefit TEDFORD HOUSING (providing housing and services for the homeless) and OASIS FREE CLINICS (providing free medical and dental services for those who are uninsured and can’t afford insurance)
