“My parents bought me a little kids’ record player when I was two or three years old, and my mother remembers me standing there playing record after record after record. I couldn’t stop playing the records. I just wanted to play records.

But honestly, I can’t really remember the first one that I bought.”

Singer-songwriter Susan Werner and her band will step into the spotlight at the Eighth Step at Proctors in Schenectady at 7pm on Sunday (October 20). She’ll be showcasing songs from her new album, “Hayseed,” which celebrates the language, livelihood, characters and concerns of American farmers. Tickets are $26 in advance; $28 at the door; $35 Gold Circle.
