Live at the A-Frame is thrilled to kick off the New Year with The Susie Glaze New Folk Ensemble! Award-winning vocalist Susie Glaze, mandolinist Steve Rankin, fiddler Mark Indictor and bassist Fred Sanders are the newest version of LA's acclaimed Americana group, a lush new folk-Americana fusion ensemble, presenting gorgeous eclectic blends of mountain folk and exciting New Grassy and Celtic-inspired originals, all with the remarkable voice of Susie Glaze. The group has been likened to Pentangle and Fairport Convention, blending classic folk music with rough-edged stories of tragedy and fate, all with arrangements sounding like chamber music gone folk! Augmenting their sound is Rankin’s lush, Celtic bouzouki, Susie’s Appalachian dulcimer and traditional autoharp, with Mark Indictor’s virtuoso fiddling and Fred Sanders’ remarkable bass work rounding out the orchestral nature of this amazing quartet. The Susie Glaze New Folk Ensemble has appeared at premier West Coast venues and festivals, including Berkeley’s Freight & Salvage, McCabe’s Guitar Shop, The Broad Stage, the Hollywood Bowl, Palms Playhouse, Don Quixote’s Music Hall, Kuumbwa Jazz Center and CalTech Folk Music Society, among others. Their 2013 CD “White Swan” was released to critical acclaim and charted in the Top 50 on the Roots Music Report’s Folk Chart. Their 2015 album “Not That Kind of Girl” produced by Herb Pedersen enjoyed critical acclaim and radio airplay around the country. Their latest CD, "Live at McCabe's" will be available for sale at our show. Song samples can be heard at www.susieglaze.com
