About

I am a concert-going addict who enjoys most forms of the arts. I started going to concerts in my teens and haven’t stopped. My addiction started in earnest several years ago when live music became a panacea for a stressful time in my life. That stress is gone, but my addiction remains.

I’m frequently two or even three times older than many members of audiences – many times, I’ve been told that I rock! That’s high praise, in my opinion!

My taste in music runs to everything except rap and heavy metal. I even like a lot of country music, which I wouldn’t have said ten years ago. When I go to the theatre, I’m interested in quality dramas and musicals. Movie interests include everything except science fiction, horror, and inane comedies, but I especially love foreign films.

I’m a potter although it’s not how I put food on my table, so you’ll see posts about pottery shows I attend as well as other art events.

I may even post when I read a particularly interesting novel.

  1. Hi Suze!
    Thanks for the review. Huge jazz-fusion fan. There’s nothing better. Scofield, Gambale, Henderson, Stern, Weckl. among others. Been a Biily fan since Spectrum in the 70’s.
    Could make the concert. Hiking in the Whites. Don’t get an oppertunity like thisvery much. It seems like the fusion musicians like to perform abroad more than here.

  2. A wonderful review of the Johnson/Stern shows. I was at the Tupelo show (the finest small venue in NH) and I just shook my head in amazement during every song. You’re right about contrasting styles but the two together are wonderful. Enjoyed your photos very much also.

  3. Hi: got your card at the Sunday night show of The Mavericks. Sorry we put our stuff on your chair! We are at a lot of different venues, we will look for you 🙂

    • No problem Cindy! You had no idea whose coat was on the chair since I was shooting from a variety of places in the venue. I’m in the process of editing the photos (some really good ones, I think) and writing the review so look for it later today!

  4. Great! We we were at Travis Tritt/acoustic at The Stadium last night. Great show! Next Saturday is John Butcher Axis at TCan. So much music, so little time!

  5. Hi Suze! Love your reviews! I’d like to invite you to a show at Oberon this Thursday- Thinkin Big Band will be celebrating 100 Years of Frank Sinatra! The show is sold out but we do have a few guest list spots left and I’d like to offer you one. More information here: http://wp.me/p6NwPH-oo

    Let me know if you would like to come via email! 🙂 Hope to hear from you!!

  6. Size: just discovered your blog via twitter – great work and great photography! Please come to a Bees Deluxe show if you like acid-blues! We play from Falmouth to Manchester and all points between! Best Regards.

  7. Hi Suze
