Fri, Oct 27th, 8-10pm, Concert Sue Decker slide guitar acoustic roots & blues
Acoustic roots and blues with slide guitar a mix of originals and covers
Sue Deckers soulful voice and slide guitar hold the audience gently while travelling through territory that is beautiful and expansive, sometimes dark, and always life-giving. Her songs embody the spirit of early blues, folk, bluegrass and country music. Shes come a long way since learning her first chords on a rented guitar at the Northern Bluegrass Circle jam in Edmonton. Thus began Sues relentless pursuit of music. Or has the music been pursuing her? The chance to play dobro for the first time at a late-night festival jam, discovering a deep affinity for singing the blues, the whispers of unwritten songsSue has dedicated herself to developing these gifts. Shes just as likely to meet her muse in Rumis poetry or at a campground in Wyoming as she is in a Bessie Smith recording. Her down-to-earth and playful connection with the audience harnesses it all in the simple power of sharing a song. After enjoying the company of cherished musician friends on stages around Edmonton for a few years, Sue answered her muses call to create a solo show. The west coast came calling as well and Sue now makes music from her home in Victoria, BC.
