Sue_RamsayThursday October 20, 2016, at 8 pm, $10 /$5. Jazz vocalist Sue Ramsay hosts another of her jazz vocal jams, backed by Bob Shields on guitar, Adam Fielding on drums and Clark Johnston on stand-up bass. With some storytelling in the mix. Seasoned singers and students all welcome. Singers bring lead sheets please. Sue says: “I want to create an environment where singers can do their thing and promote whatever they’re working on.  And I get to try out new material and jam with my trio. I have often found being a singer is a lonely road. The path is not always clear but so much easier with a network of friends around.”  http://www.suzanne-ramsay.com/ .
