Sue Foley Band

Finley's Bar and Grill, 705 Vernon St, , Nelson, BC V1L 4G3

Sue Foley is a multi-award-winning musician and one of the finest blues and roots artists working today. She’s a triple-threat as a lead guitarist, songwriter and vocalist. Foley has a long history of defying convention, and being a positive role model for aspiring, young female musicians. Foley was born in Ottawa, Ontario, and spent her early childhood in Canada. She learned to play guitar at age 13, became interested in blues music from listening to the Rolling Stones, and played her first gig at age 16. After high school graduation, she relocated to Vancouver where she formed The Sue Foley Band and toured Canada for several years.[ She began her recording career at the age of 21 in Austin, TX with Antone’s, the esteemed blues label and historic nightclub that helped launch the career of Stevie Ray Vaughan and many others. In 2001, she won the prestigious Juno Award and also holds the record for the most Maple Blues Awards in Canada and has earned three Trophees de Blues de France. She has also garnered several nominations at the Blues Music Awards from The Blues Foundation. Her most recent CD, The Ice Queen (Mar 2 2018) was recorded in San Marcos, Texas. The album represents Foley’s full circle journey – her return to the roots of her career in Austin and her reconnection with many old friends. Joining Sue Foley as special guests is a trio of legendary Texas guitarslingers – Jimmie Vaughan, Z.Z.Top’s Billy F Gibbons and Charlie Sexton - as well as a host of other Lone Star State all-stars. This is one show not to be missed. We are very fortunate to have an artist of this calibre, and global recognition, stop by Nelson to perform for us. Spread the word...Sue Foley is on the way!

Opening for Sue Foley will be Baker Street Blues
