Suzy Bogguss fronts her band with her amazing vocals at the Earlville Opera House this Saturday, July 27th at 8pm. The evening promises to be exceptional in the almost perfect acoustics of the historic hall.

The historic Earlville Opera House welcomes country music star, Suzy Bogguss to its main stage on Saturday, July 27th at 8 pm.  Susan Kay “Suzy” Bogguss has earned multiple awards for her amazing voice.  In the 1980s and 90s, Suzy Bogguss released one platinum and three gold albums and charted six top ten singles, winning the Academy of Country Music’s award for Top New Female Vocalist and the Country Music Association’s Horizon Award.  She started her own record label.  Most recently she’s released American Folk Songbook.  The performance is generously sponsored by the Syracuse New Times

Hit songs like “Aces,” “Drive South,” “Someday Soon,” “Outbound Plane” and “Letting Go (link to songs) took Bogguss to the top of the country music charts. Along the way she won raves from critics and peers including winning a GRAMMY in 2005 for Traditional Folk Album, the Country Music Association’s Horizon Award in 1992 and CMA Album of the Year Award in 1994.

Her most recent work has received excellent reviews with Pop Matters weighing in that the American Folk Songbook is a “warm and beautiful record; highly recommended.” Daryl Addison in his GAC Album review described the project’s significance:  “On her 13th studio album, American Folk Songbook, Grammy and CMA-award winning singer Suzy Bogguss takes a journey into the vaults of American music. With a pristine voice that is both technically savvy and emotionally charged, Suzy works with stripped down arrangements to add a modern touch to classic Americana.

“Stemming from the idea that American heritage music was being lost on today’s children, Suzy set her mind to capturing traditional folk, bluegrass and Americana songs for a new generation…American Folk Songbook is an enthralling 17-song collection that succeeds in preserving many pieces of our storied musical history.”

Suzy Bogguss You Tubes

Suzy Bogguss had a revelation on stage with Garrison Keillor in 2008. Everyone loves to sing along on “Red River Valley” – except the children who somehow don't know the song. Folk songs are the scrapbook of the American experience, but as music education fades from our public schools, she worried; these beautiful melodies are in danger of being overlooked. She resolved to record these timeless songs in an updated but reverent way – so that everyone can sing along on “Red River Valley.” The project turned into The American Folk
