About Fruitlands Fall Concert Series: Jill Sobule

We are thrilled to announce that Fall concerts are returning this year in the Fruitlands open-air event tent. This year’s series of intimate performances celebrates diverse women’s voices in art and music today, featuring an incredible all-female lineup of talented musicians.

On September 15th we welcome Jill Sobule to the stage!

Jill Sobule, an award-winning artist with the ECR Music Group, has released a dozen albums spanning three decades of recording. The Denver-born songwriter/guitarist/singer’s work is at once deeply personal and socially conscious, seriously funny, and derisively tragic. While her songs cover expansive thematic ground, they benefit greatly from Jill’s subtle intelligence and skillful light-handedness. No sloganeering flag-and-fist waving here, but rather portrait-&-story songs about human beings, real and imagined, which allow us to step back from the issues they tackle, be they individual or societal, and to relate to them as we would to a close friend.

On stage, she entertains, amuses, provokes, and more often than not, takes her audiences on an emotional roller coaster, from comedy to pathos in a few bars of music, often within the same song.

Jill Sobule’s recording career began in 1990 with the album Things Here Are Different (MCA), produced by Todd Rundgren. Radio took notice thanks to the single’s “Too Cool To Fall In Love”. Her 1995 self-titled album (Atlantic) brought her mainstream commercial and critical success with two hit singles: the satirical gem “Supermodel” from the movie Clueless and “I Kissed A Girl” (the original), the first ever openly queer-themed Billboard Top 20 record.

Concert begins at 6:30PM, Doors Open 6PM
