If you don’t know us yet, come on down and make some new friends!

Most of the folks who play at The Sunset Saloon just happen to be passing through town and are in need of a welcoming place to play. On rare occasions, we reach out to our favourites in hopes that they might consider making the trek to Winnipeg just to play for us. The latter is the case with this show, featuring one of the country’s finest songwriters and an amazingly intriguing performer. She also happens to be a real sweetheart and a longtime friend. Suzie is special all-around, and it’s a rare treat to see her in an intimate house concert environment.
You can catch Oh Susanna pretty regularly in town playing festivals and bigger stages, but up close and personal is definitely the way to go. Her thoughtful, detailed, powerful songs are best experienced in a quiet, comfortable room full of like-minded folks ready to be swept away. This will be a special night, and one that you do not want to miss!
Of course, it helps that Suzie is touring on the strength of one of the most acclaimed and amazing releases of 2017. Already she’s been nominated for has earned three Canadian Folk Music Award nominations: English Songwriter of the Year, Contemporary Singer of the Year, and Producer of the Year.
“A Girl in Teen City” is an exquisite song cycle set in 1980s Vancouver, represents a second coming for the rootsy Toronto-based songstress…..her thoughtful and tuneful coming-of-age is universal.” — The Globe and Mail
“A Girl in Teen City” is a gorgeous piece of work. There’s something here for anyone who appreciates the art of songwriting and great musicianship. I haven’t heard a better, or more complete, album this year so far.”
