Many of you will recognize Suzie from her first appearance here at MCC in March 2016, where she played to a full house (well, a full living room anyway) of joyous, smiling friends. You won't meet a kinder, sweeter performer than Suzie. She warms up the room instantly, and interacts with her audience in a casual, open, genuine way. We first saw Suzie perform in 2015 at another house concert. We always hate trying to ‘categorize’ artists, but to give you something to chew on, we’d call Suzie a blues singer with noticeable jazz influences, and a REALLY good blues acoustic guitarist.
Nominated three times for a Juno Award (the Canadian equivalent of a Grammy Award), and a ten-time winner of the Maple Blues Award for Best Female Vocalist in Canada, Suzie performs a mix of her own music and some covers, including some blues classics. Suzie has released five solo records, and is working on her sixth, a compilation of original blues and roots songs plus a few covers; you can pre-order Suzie's new record, or support her by ordering other cool stuff, here.

We’re really excited to welcome Suzie back to MCC for her second appearance.
Shelley has been gifted with one of the biggest, boldest, shake-you-to-your-soul blues & gospel voices you'll ever hear - and she writes some equally powerful songs.
She performs a mix of solo acoustic shows, full-band rock/blues shows, and recently has spent a bunch of time performing with Carolyn Wonderland, Marcia Ball, Cindy Cashdollar and Amy Helm as the Woodstock Lonestars (look 'em up, they're pretty amazing).
Shelley just released a "best of" compilation entitled Fan Faves - her eighth full-length CD - a pretty cool concept where her fans' requests determined what songs would be included on the record.
Shelley is a two-time winner of an Austin Music Award, and was named Official State Musician of Texas in 2008, an honor shared by Willie Nelson, Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top), Joe Ely, Ray Benson and others.
