One of the joys of playing music is being able to share the experience with an audience.  Sue welcomes every opportunity to make that magical connection between musician and audience, to weave a melodic tapestry with her harp-like fingerpicking style, and to let her strings tell the story of each song she plays.

From the intimate settings of a house concert, library, and coffee house to the larger stages of music festivals and community celebrations, some of Sue’s past and present performances include:
