May: Oh Susanna and Our Shotgun Wedding

May is going to be a great month.  The weather is warming up as spring arrives.  And in only two more weeks, we have Oh Susanna and Our Shotgun Wedding stopping by to share their music with us.


If you haven’t heard Oh Susanna before, check her out.  Oh Susanna draws you in with her lyrics and her voice.  She has previously released 7 records.  Her latest, Namedropper, was delayed as Suzie spent a year fighting breast cancer.  This gives the record an energy and a joy that is precious and special.  It is built on a great premise: other singer-songwriters wrote songs for her to sing.  It’s the kind of collaboration that makes music great.  You can hear the essence of the song-writer, who happen to be some of Canada’s great musicians like Joel Plaskett, Ron Sexsmith, Amelia Curran and the Good Lovelies, to name just a couple.  Mix that with the magic of Oh Susanna’s voice and you want to listen to the songs over and over.

“This project is about friendship. Through music we want to express our admiration, gratitude and respect for our fellow Canadian songwriters. They kick us in the ass. They break our hearts. They inspire.”

Opening for Oh Susanna is Our Shotgun Wedding.  They are from Owen Sound and have those irresistible catchy tunes that you can’t help tapping your feet or bopping your head along with.  Listening to them just makes you feel happy.  They’ve got a pretty interesting story, too.  They met at Summerfolk (right in Owen Sound) on the dance floor and have been making beautiful music since.  [I know…that was cheesy but I just couldn’t resist!]  They’ve even played the Desboro Fall Fair!  Check them out.

“Our Shotgun Wedding a duo with an infectious energy, clever, well-written songs and a ton of charisma. On festival workshops they are a great spark-plug who can kick start an onstage jam and make everybody feel welcome.”
-James Keelaghan, Artistic Director, Summerfolk Music and Crafts Festival
