Sue and Dwight are a folk roots duo, originally from Winnipeg and now living in Toronto. Their music is strongly influenced by their journey from the prairies to the big city and travel in East Africa.
Lyrics are honest and insightful with themes of peace, courage, and social justice, conveyed through rich harmonies. Through gentle persuasion the songs remind us not to lose sight of what’s really important in the world.
Sue and Dwight recently completed a five year residency at The Cameron House in Toronto, are part of the TTC Subway Musicians Program, have performed in festivals and toured in Ontario and Western Canada.
Sue and Dwight’s debut indie CD, ‘Darlings of the Open Stage’, released in 2006, is Sue and Dwight’s tribute to passionate performers everywhere who take the stage each night to share their music. The CD showcases Sue and Dwight’s unique roots styling through twelve original songs co-produced with Kevin Quain.
Their second CD, ‘Little Child Big World’, released in 2009, is a collection of songs inspired by travels to Ethiopia, Uganda, and Malawi in 2007. The songs document Sue and Dwight’s experiences visiting small villages and meeting courageous, resilient people. Thirteen original songs co-produced with Kevin Quain.
Without pretension, they share their songs and stories while creating a warm atmosphere at their live shows. Rich harmonies are front and centre in their musical arrangements, supported by laid-back guitars, piano, and accordion.
