The setting is intimate, the stage is pared back to the bare essentials, the show is part unfiltered stories, part unembellished music. And your audience has an all-access pass. Get ready to see Sue Orfield get “Stripped Down.” It’s almost like you’re eavesdropping as renowned pianist, music composer, and interviewer-extraordinaire, George Maurer, leads Sue through conversations and accompanies her on songs that reveal the layers of her musical life. Her mentors, influences, first bands, big breaks, memorable moments and even stories “from the road” are fair game in “Stripped Down.” You can be part of the fun by coming up with a question of your own, and you just might have the chance to sit right on stage. Sue Orfield plays the tenor saxophone with the whimsy of Sonny Rollins, the passion of Kurt Cobain, the soul of Bill Withers, and the joy of Ella Fitzgerald. Along with a compelling mastery of her instrument, Sue brings to the stage a powerful presence and joy of all things musical.
