SSG Presents Sharon Goldman!

Enzo's , 382 US-46, Budd Lake, New Jersey 07828

Rescheduled! Sharon Goldman is a singer-songwriter whose "intense, insightful, vivid" storytelling is a "clinic in how to paint an indelible picture with the simplest images and symbols." Over several well-received albums, she has combined heartfelt portraits and memorable lyrics with unforgettable melodies and pure, precise, expressive vocals — taking a folk/pop sensibility to new artistic heights.

"Sharon has a beautiful voice and a compelling stage presence. Her music is powerful and heartening. It connects us to our humanity and transcends cultural specifics, inviting us into universal truths." — Joe Jencks, Brother Sun

Come to share a few of your original songs or just to listen to some great music by local songwriters - always fun!!
