Canadian Sue Foley has not only received awards in her home country, including numerous Juno and Maple Blues Awards as one of the most remarkable Canadian blues musicians, but also several prestigious international blues awards. But ever since this first-class guitarist and singer successfully immigrated into the legendary music scene of Austin (Texas) almost 30 years ago, she counts as one of the select circle of great Texas blues women, along with famous friends such as Lou Ann Barton, Marcia Ball, Angela Strehli and the late lamented Candye Kane. And on the electric guitar, she may hardly have a serious female rival apart from Californian Laura Chavez – Sue Foley has every right to be called “The Finest Blues Guitar Woman”.
in Basel, both of them will be on stage. Sue Foley as well as Californian Laura Chavez. This is only possible because of the fact that Groove Now has a close relationship with Laura since her first appearance many years back at Groove Now with legendary Candye Kane that unfortunately is not among ourselves anymore.
With her last album the fabulous “The Ice Queen”, Sue is playing with local heroes such as Jimmie Vaughan and Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top fame.
