(Harvard, Mass) notloB Parlour Concerts and its patrons are very fortunate that Californian Suzy Thompson will be joining Jim Kweskin at his “extravaganza” at the Regent Theater in Arlington on February 4 (the show is sold out) and to present workshops at the Berklee School of Music, as she has selected it as one of two presenters for side concerts, notloB on February 7, and a house concert in Roslindale the next day. Contact notloB for details.

Suzy Thompson is a “musician’s musician” who plays fiddle and guitar alongside artists like Jim Kweskin, Geoff Muldaur, Del Rey, Ann Savoy, etc.

This rare solo concert will include blues, Cajun and Old-Time material.  Suzy will also perform material from two albums that she’s currently working on.

Suzy usually performs with her husband, guitarist Eric Thompson. They live in Berkeley CA where Suzy directs the Berkeley Old Time Music Convention (now in its 20th year).

Suzy’s long musical journey dates from touring with British singer Frankie Armstrong when she was still in her teens. In her 20s, she was a founding member of Any Old Time String Band (their Arhoolie album is still in print) and Blue Flame String Band (highly regarded recording on Flying Fish). She has performed and recorded with banjo players Mac Benford (Backwoods Band) and Bill Evans (Bluegrass Intentions) and Cajun accordion legend Danny Poullard (California Cajun Orchestra, 2 award winning albums).  The past 10 years or so have included a landmark blues album with the Texas Sheiks (Geoff Muldaur, Jim Kweskin, Cindy Cashdollar et al), duets with resonator ukulele and guitar goddess Del Rey, and a recent collaboration with Cajun superstar Ann Savoy. Suzy also has recorded with Kathy Kallick and Laurie Lewis, Maria Muldaur, Country Joe McDonald, Darol Anger, Jody Stecher & Kate Brislin, Mary Flower, Alan Senauke, etc.
