Local singer-songwriter Danielle Ponder has postponed gigs this week in New Jersey and Massachusetts, and she canceled today’s show at the New York State Fair’s Chevy Court Stage in Syracuse. The Fleetwood Mac tribute band Seven Wonders is filling in.

Ponder cited health concerns as the reason behind the scheduling changes. In a Facebook post Sunday, she said she wasn’t feeling well and needed a break.

The R&B musician has been on tour since late January, playing across the United States and Canada, as well as in Europe, while promoting her debut full-length album “Some of Us Are Brave.”

Ponder is scheduled to resume her performances on September 16 in Kentucky. Her brief hiatus is not expected to affect her two-night run of shows at the new Rochester venue The Essex on October 6 and 7.
