Oh Susanna Pairs with Canada’s Best on ‘Namedropper’

Alternative country musician Oh Susanna is touring to promote her latest album, featuring written music by some of Canada’s best songwriters.

Oh Susanna, aka Suzie Ungerleider, will perform Saturday, November 8 at Winnipeg’s West End Cultural Centre.

The album, Namedropper, is a collection of songs written for her by Keri Latimer of Nathan, Ron Sexsmith, Royal Wood, Jim Cuddy, Amelia Curran and others. The album was released October 7 and completed on time, despite Ungerleider being diagnosed with breast cancer in the spring of 2013. Her initial reaction was a sense of guilt that her ensuing treatment would put the brakes on what had become a highly anticipated musical project for her, her collaborators and fans.

Tickets for the show are $25 at the door or $20 in advance through the WECC, Ticketmaster, Winnipeg Folk Festival Music Store and Music Trader.
