Folkus: Suzie Vinnick & Lloyd Spiegel

Sat, 18 Feb 2023 - Sat, 18 Feb

Time: 8:00PM

Cost: Series of 4: $110. Single: $30/$15 students

Vinnick needs no introduction to local audiences, as she is a long-time friend of Folkus, beloved for her blistering bluesy guitar and bass chops, and honey-sweet vocals. Suzie has won 10 Maple Blues Awards, 1 Cdn Folk Music Award and is a 3-time Juno nominee. She has also twice won the International Songwriting Competition — Blues Category. She has just released her seventh solo album entitled Fall Back Home. Lloyd Spiegel is almost Suzie’s Australian counterpart, with 14 Australian Blues Music Awards under his belt. He blends jaw-dropping guitar chops with a commanding voice, powerful songwriting, storytelling and comedy. A touring artist since age 11 and with 10 albums to his name, Lloyd has squeezed more into his 40 years than many do in a lifetime.
