A native of Saskatoon, celebrated blues guitarist, singer, and musical pioneer Suzie Vinnick has blazed her own trail by fusing elements of folk, country, and rock and roll into her constantly evolving sound. Taking risks with originals and covers alike, she’s an established song crafter who has invested her substantial pop smarts into an ever-growing canon of her own creation while engaging in open-minded musical collaborations along the way.
Suzie is a maverick, eager to explore territory beyond the mainstream, and her gorgeous, powerful voice is the perfect vehicle for her heartfelt lyrics and force-of-nature guitar playing. She has won 10 Maple Blues Awards and is truly one of our country’s standout blues artists.
This concert is part of Canada Scene’s free Scene@6 series. Running every evening at 6:00 from July 2 to 23, the series showcases this country’s top folk, roots, world, and jazz artists in the NAC’s new Atrium.
