Sue Foley to record new live album at El Mocambo
There’s an unmistakable magic that comes with live music captured live-off-the-floor and forever archived in album form. Such an experience is on the horizon with multi-award-winning powerhouse blues guitarist and singer Sue Foley and an upcoming concert recording Thursday 8 at the El Mocambo.
Tickets are available here.
Presented by El Mocambo and Sam Grosso, the Juno-nominated and Maple Blues Award-winner’s live recording event adds her to the list of iconic artists who have previously recorded live releases at the legendary venue — including The Rolling Stones, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Elvis Costello.
Sue is a five-time Juno Award nominee and 2001 winner for Best Blues Album, and a few weeks ago, she was also named as the winner of the Traditional Blues Album and Traditional Blues Female Artist of the Year awards at the 2022 Blues Music Awards in the US. Last month, she won Guitarist of the Year and Entertainer of the Year at the Maple Blues Awards, and her new album, Pinky’s Blues, has been on the Roots Music Report’s Canadian Chart top 10 albums for the last 27 weeks.
Sue Foley’s Live Recording will take place on Thursday, Sept. 8 at El Mocambo. Tickets are $40, and $20 for students, with a special meet and greet VIP ticket for $80.
