Folk singer-songwriter Susan Werner knows food. She grew up on a family farm in Iowa. She has strong opinions about what we should eat and where that food should come from. So she says it was a no brainer when she was commissioned to write a concept album about farming. Werner brings that music to Birmingham Saturday night as part of her "Hayseed Project" tour.
The performance at UABâs Alys Stephens Center is part of the concert hallâs first ever Nite Market â a farmers market with talks by local growers, demonstrations, games and garden inspired art. Werner tells WBHMâs Sarah Delia sheâs looking forward to the conversation on local food and sheâs been studying up on Alabama agriculture.Click here to listen to the interview.
