ASPEN ” As part of its Lyrically Speaking songwriter series, the Aspen Writers’ Foundation will present Grammy Award-winning folk-rock musician Michelle Shocked at the Belly Up on Thursday, Oct. 18 at 7 pm.

The pioneering concert-and-conversation program will feature Shocked on stage with Paul Zollo, senior editor for American Songwriter magazine, sharing a mix of songs and songwriting insights.

Bursting onto the U.S. scene in 1989 with her landmark album, “Short, Sharp, Shocked,” Michelle Shocked is a singer-songwriter known for her iconoclastic bent, both musically and politically. Throughout her career Shocked has used her powerful vocals and lyrics as much to deliver scorching tunes as stinging social commentary.

Tickets to the Michelle Shocked show are $30 general admission and $75 for reserved seating with a gourmet three-course, pre-show dinner. Doors and dinner seating are at 6 p.m. for the 7 p.m. show.
