Monday - In-the-Round-Throw Down

people 1283974 640
This evening's concert slot has traditionally been used to feature SUUSI musicians who have become habitual attendees and regular members of the SUUSI community. Taking advantage of our new location and a brand new space, tonight we showcase as many of these fabulous performers as we can in our one hour time slot. Come hear your favorites and enjoy the new found joy of finding new music to love.


Tuesday - Danielle Milagria

Danielle comes armed with a strong, steady thumb on an old Gibson, an infectious stomp-box rhythm and harmonica with tunes ranging from heart-felt to socially consious that will move both your heart and hips. On the latest, "Glory Junkies" she's joined by a killer cast of musicians blending the classic rock vibe of the Rolling Stones and Ja nis Joplin with Danielle's signature lyrical ability to explore human nature at its best and worst. Danielle was nominated for a 2015 Boston Music Award for Singe-Songwriter of the Year.



Wednesday - Brother Sun

Optimized Brother Sun.4.9 mb
Internatinal touring artists Greg Greenway, Joe Jencks and Pat Wictor have made their mark as veteran touring sing-songwriters. But Brother Sun is no songwriter's round. The trio's harmonies, as much as their lyrics, tell what they are about: warm as a campfire, stirring as a gospel church, rousing as a call to arms. Fusing folk, Americana, blues, pop, jazz, roacl and acapella singing, Brother Sun is an explosion of musical diversity and harmony in the finest of male singing traditions.


Thursday - School of Rock

Rapidly becoming a SUUSI tradition, this is a highly entertaining evening brought to us by the young people from the School of Rock workshop. An energenic and electrifying performance as a postlude to tonight's bridging service.
