Contemporary folk music with a few twists.

Although Sue and Dwight were born too late to be part of the folk revival of the 1960’s their music embodies the spirit of that time. Both are songwriters whose work focuses on themes of peace, courage, and social justice. At their live shows they share, without pretension, their stories of the prairies, life in the big city, and travels in East Africa. Their warm harmonies, nesting on a bed of acoustic instrumentation, create a warm, intimate and memorable experience.

“Their lyrics always tell a story and frequently pull at your emotions...asking us to consider what we can do to improve our world and the planet we live on.” – Bruce Hanson, smalltowntoronto.com

Sue and Dwight have released three CDs of original music. The first, ‘Darlings of the Open Stage’, is a tribute to passionate performers everywhere who take the stage each night to share their music. The duo honed their own songwriting at an open stage at Toronto’s Cameron House hosted by the Leslie Spit Treeo. The weekly sessions were a creative incubator for numerous emerging songwriters and spoken word artists. For Sue and Dwight, it spawned a reflection on their prairie roots that also hinted at their new experiences in Canada’s largest city.

‘Little Child Big World’, the follow up CD, is a collection of songs inspired by travels to small villages in Ethiopia, Malawi, Uganda and Tanzania. While there, Sue and Dwight met small farmers, people living with AIDS, night commuters and other courageous and resilient individuals. They also met the dedicated rural aid and health workers engaged in the communities. While underlining the injustice of the disparity between the developed and developing world, the CD’s focus is on the individuals the duo met. Their stories paint pictures of a world so familiar yet so afar. Both CDs are co-produced with Kevin Quain.

Their newest release 'For A Moment' is a collection of songs that reflect the diversity of moments that make up our everyday lives. Some moments are fleeting glimpses into the lives of people we pass by. Others can be deeply personal...leading to epiphanies that give us a whole new outlook. Still others can lead to significant social or historical change at some unforeseen point down the road. Our lives are full of these and other moments.

“Their music embodies the spirit of roots music, and too few recent artists can accomplish that.”
– Brian Gladstone, Festival Director, Winterfolk

As performers and songwriters, Sue and Dwight like to connect with audiences wherever they are. For the past 10 years, the duo has been a fixture on the Toronto Music Scene performing in clubs, house concerts and festivals in the area, including a six year weekly residency at The Cameron House. Tours have taken them further afield to other parts of Ontario and Western Canada. They have also had the good fortune to be able to perform for the very people many of their songs have been written about...women living with HIV, students, and farmers...in school yards, villages and fields in Malawi, Tanzania and Uganda.

Sue and Dwight are:
Sue Peters – vocals and acoustic guitar
