Peter Karp and Sue Foley in Concert
These two accomplished and well respected artists share The Winchester Music Hall stage with their band for night of Americana, folk, roots, blues music and great stories.
Peter Karp is a gifted American troubadour, a master songsmith with an art for spinning true-to-life emotions, humor, and candor. With an upbringing that was equal parts southern Alabama and the swamps of New Jersey, Karp's music is fueled by the Yankee-Rebel juxtaposition.
On the road across the U.S. and Canada, Peter Karp repeatedly transfixes his live audiences. Critics compare his songwriting to John Hiatt and John Prine with impressive guitar and slide licks infused by his love of Freddie King and Elmore James. Peter Karp personifies the amorphous Americana sound, seamlessly blending blues, folk and roots music with a high sense of entertainment.
Notable Canadian songwriter, producer and prolific recording artist Sue Foley is considered to be one of the finest blues / roots artists working today. Throughout the 90's she took to the road with her paisley Telecaster and honed her craft working/sharing the stage with such artists as B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Lucinda Williams, Tom Petty and more.
Since 1999, Sue Foley has received a record-setting 18 Maple Blues Awards, and three Trophée de blues in France. In 2000, she won the Juno Award for Best Blues Album. Sue also received a nomination for the prestigious Blues Music Award for best contemporary female artist in 2002.
