Sue Harrison and PALamazoo Live Concert or Kids Workshops
Forever young entertainment for all ages.
Susan Harrison is a facilitator of fun! Her music invites you to join in the musical celebration while sharing her original songs that have been described as a blend of rootsy folk rock, jazzy pop, and alt-country. To keep things interesting her music is more that blues and joy there are shades of purple and hues of turquoise. Sweet, sassy, soulful, clever and fun. A musical hybrid of Janice, Joni, Motown, Bonni and all things she allowed to enter her musical listening palate.
Harrison is a versatile performer from Kalamazoo, Michigan. She has been singing since the day her Aunt Florence's dog Buddy confirmed her ability when he joined her in song under the dining room table. Her first guitar was a ruler with rubber bands and she continues to stretch her musical elasticity. She attended her first music festival, Woodstock at a young age and continues to seek out inspirational opportunities. As Kalamazoo's regional coordinator for NSAI (Nashville Songwriters Association International) she strives to promote quality songwriting and never quit learning.
