Warmth, vitality, and spontaneity mark the performances of Susie Burke and David Surette, and have earned them a reputation as one of the finest acts on the lively New England folk scene.
Susie's beautiful, complex voice and David's graceful, nimble-fingered string playing combine with extraordinary results on their own blend of contemporary, traditional, and original folk and acoustic music. Together since 1988, Susie and David have built a steady following for their music, a following that has continued to grow with the release of their When the Small Birds Sweetly Sing CD in 2008.
Recipients of Individual Artist Fellowship awards from the NH State Council on the Arts, Susie and David are also on the Council's Touring Arts roster. Between their solo and duo projects, they have released ten albums since 1990 on the Madrina Music label, to positive response from both critics and audiences. Together, they bring skill, taste, feeling, and pure enjoyment to their music, and are bringing their music to an ever-widening circle of listeners.
"...Her dark-crystal soprano is transporting, and he is a graceful, intelligent guitarist."
