Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter Suzanne Vega returns to the New York stage on February 4th at 8:00 p.m. with a performance at the Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center.
“I’m really looking forward to it,” Vega, who has a house in Amagansett, says of the show.
The performance will celebrate Vega’s past and present musical compilations. Currently, she is in the midst of reinterpreting and re-recording her career works in four installments. Titled The Close Up Series, the albums feature stripped down versions of her earlier tracks.
“It’s minimal, but not entirely folksy,” Vega says of the series. “There is still a great amount of production and there are some alternative elements.”
Though she has promoted her music around the world, receiving international acclaim for her unique voice and poetic songs, Vega always makes time to return to Amagansett. She first fell in love with Long Island in 1990 when stayed at the American Hotel to see “There Might Be Giants,” an alternative rock group, perform.
“It’s beautiful, quiet, off the beaten path,” says Vega of Amagansett. “I’ve had spells where I write out here.”
