Sue_Ramsay_Mike_Stanutz.jpgFriday September 30 at 8 pm, $5.  Jazz with Suzanne Ramsay, vocals,  and Mike Stanutz, guitar – originals and “hippy jazz”, a bit folky, a bit jazzy, definitely alt. Sue recently appeared at the Burlington Blues and Jazz Festival. “She is very excited about her new all original CD with Mike Stanutz entitled Dichotomy. It starts from their regular 50’s groove and moves quite quickly into some jazzier and some more alternative 60’s sounds. A soulful place …..a blending of jazz and alternative. We know you’re going to love it.” Listen to Sue here:  http://www.suzanne-ramsay.com/music.html
