Multi-platinum selling vocalist Suzy Bogguss will be making a rare appearance at Glasgow Royal concert hall on Wednesday for a night of classic acoustic folk bliss.

Suzy Bogguss is an exceptional talent who has the remarkable ability to easily connect with audiences in the country, folk, pop and jazz worlds.

Audiences can look forward to an exciting mix of songs from a variety of genres throughout this performance.

Suzy said: “Folk songs are the scrapbook of the American experience. I didn’t want to present these songs as dusty museum pieces but instead breath a new life into them with contemporary arrangements”.

Last year she released her American Folk Songbook to critical acclaim featuring a crack squad of Nashville’s acoustic A-listers: Jerry Douglas, Stuart Duncan, Pat Bergeson, Charlie Chadwick and Jeff Taylor.

Her voice weaves through the guitars and mandolins to find the new in these old songs and her willingness to embrace tradition shines through.

Songs like Aces, Drive South, Someday Soon, Outbound Plane and Letting Go took her to the top of the country music charts.

Along the way she won rave reviews from critics and peers including winning a Grammy in 2005 for Traditional Folk Album of the year, the Country Music Association’s Horizon Award in 1992 and album of the Year award in 1994.

Suzy Bogguss plays at the Glasgow Royal concert hall Strathclyde suite from 7.30pm. Tickets £16 from www.glasgowconcerthalls.com/glasgowmusic.
