Janis Ian

Saw Janis Ian tonight in Colorado Springs at Stargazers Theatre.

She's been performing since she was 14, has had several hit songs including her stellar song "seventeen", and exhibited her songwriting lyricism skills and simple finesse with a guitar to a pretty full crowd.

She performed two encores and said several times that this was one the best concerts she thinks she's had in a while.

Also - if she ever wanted to take a break from her music career she could make a living doing stand-up comedy... check out her lyics from her song "married in london"
(She performed this live tonight and I swear she used a different word than "bugger" in the last line! )
