Oh Susanna and Friends will be celebrating Decemberly, the latest release by celebrated singer-songwriter, Oh Susanna. It’s a recording of original and classic holiday songs written alongside fellow songwriter, Michael Johnston, who also plays piano on the recording. On November 29, we invite the whole city to get into the spirit of the season with a night of familiar and future classics performed by Oh Susanna and a most impressive roster of her many notable friends in the business.
Kate Boothman, Gentleman Reg, Michael Johnston, The Layrite Boys, The Young Novelists, Whitehorse and Tom Wilson of Lee Harvey Osmond
This Canadian songstress has a voice that can pierce a heart of stone. Her superbly crafted songs often tell stories of troubled souls who rebel against their circumstances to attain a quiet dignity. These 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.
Performing since 1996, Oh Susanna has released eight critically acclaimed albums. She is the recipient of a Genie Award for Best Original Song and a Canadian Folk Music Award for English Songwriter of the Year. She has also been nominated for two Juno Awards each for Best Roots and Traditional Album of the Year, as well as two Canadian Folk Music Awards for Best Solo Performer and for Best Contemporary Singer of the Year. This year she released A Girl in Teen City, an album of songs set in 1980s Vancouver starring a teenage punk girl named Suzie. The album has been met with high critical acclaim and has earned three Canadian Folk Music Award nominations: English Songwriter of the Year, Contemporary Singer of the Year and Producer of the Year. Today, Oh Susanna lives in Toronto with her husband and son, and her music can be found LIVE this holiday season at Hugh’s Room Live.
