Sue Foley has been riding a wave of success since her acclaimed album The Ice Queen (2018). She won “Best Traditional Female (Koko Taylor Award)” at the 2020 Blues Music Awards in Memphis, was nominated for a Juno Award (Canadian Grammy), and she took home the award for “Best Guitar Player” at the Toronto Maple Blues Awards. There will be a special Sue Foley VIP Meet & Greet package available to the first 20 lucky fans who purchase the upgrade, and it includes: VIP laminate, Signed CD of her new album, Official Sue Foley T-shirt, Meet & Greet with Sue beginning at 6 pm, one hour before the doors open to the public.
Foley’s highly anticipated new album (currently untitled) is a raw, electric guitar-driven romp through the backroads of Texas blues, with her signature pink paisley Fender Telecaster, “Pinky” at the wheel. With this project we find Foley returning to her roots as the bandleader and guitar slinger in a dynamic blues power trio, and it was recorded live in the studio in San Marcos, TX and produced by Mike Flanigin (Jimmie Vaughan, Billy F Gibbons).
For the last few years, Foley and her band have kept a rigorous touring schedule across the US, Canada, and Europe. Some highlights were appearances at The Beacon Theater (NYC), guesting with Jimmie Vaughan (opening for Eric Clapton) at Royal Albert Hall in London, Montreal Jazz Fest, Ottawa Blues Fest (w/ Buddy Guy), Utah Blues Fest, The Heights Theater (Houston), Moulin Blues (Holland), NPR’s Mountain Stage (w/Bela Fleck), Doheny Blues Fest, and the Jungle Show in Austin, TX.
