Suzie Ungerleider began performing as Oh Susanna in the mid-1990s, crafting a persona that matched the timeless qualities of her music, sounds that drew from the deep well of early 20th Century folk, country and blues, yet rooted in her finely-honed storytelling skills. A nominee for both Juno and Canadian Folk Music Awards, Oh Susanna won the CFMA as Best English Songwriter. She has a voice that can pierce a heart of stone. Her superbly crafted songs are tales of longing and love, of small town joys and pains, of our simple feelings and strong passions. These are tales that look into our beautifully flawed human hearts. Oh Susanna’s album, Namedropper, is a killer collection of songs written for her by some of Canada’s best songwriters and was nominated for a CFMA for Solo Artist of the Year. Her newest CD A Girl In Teen City will be released this spring. Oh Susanna will perform at the Nick with James Booth on guitar and Eli Abrams on bass.
Beth Portman is influenced by her love of early film. An award-winning animator, music played a major role in her two films for the National Film Board — Cactus Swing and Fair Phyllis, with a madrigal soundtrack featuring her lyrics. Beth is a founding member of the world-beat, a cappella sextet Juba, who toured from Yellowknife to Harare, Zimbabwe. Beth presents a personal perspective to life and love through original music and lyrics described as, “clever, touching and sassy”. Her debut album, Lovin’, was released in 2011. She recently released Take a Trip, with her band, The Good Find.
