Susie Glaze &
The HiLonesome Band

A Nightingale!  We heard this simple description of Susie Glaze before we ever heard her sing a single note.  The first time we heard her, it was clear this description was hers to own.  Singing acappella in a hotel conference room during a workshop about the origins of Appalachian music, Susie instantly won our hearts.  The next opportunity to hear Susie came along when she and the Hilonesome Band performed at The Topanga Banjo and Fiddle Festival.  Wow!  We invited her, on the spot, to bring the band to Música Del Río.

Originally a Broadway actress and singer, now an award-winning recording artist and critically acclaimed Bluegrass powerhouse vocalist, Susie Glaze has carried her Tennessee roots across America.  From her Broadway debut in Roger Miller’s “Big River” to her captivating (and award winning) presentations of traditional Americana songs from The Stanley Brothers, Doc Watson and Jean Ritchie, Susie has offered us musical gifts which connect us to the true heritage of American Roots music.

Joining Susie here will be her regular sidemen, The Hilonesome Band.  Mark Indictor is on fiddle.  Steve Rankin is on mandolin with lead vocals and harmonies.  Rounding out the band is Rob Carlson on lead guitar, Dobro and vocal harmony.  Rob also wrote many of Susie and the band’s featured tunes.

In reviewing Susie’s 2005 release Blue Eyed Darlin’; KCSN radio said “Susie Glaze does something with a song that only great singers can do…she grabs hold of a song’s deepest emotion and purpose, and wraps it tightly around your soul.”

Entertainment Weekly wrote; “…she can blow the roof off any joint lucky enough to book her.”  Susie and the band will prove it at Música Del Río once again, as they kick off our 9th season on Friday, September 12.
