Sue Foley

Save the date! The Canadian blues ingenue turned Texas axe slinger brings over 35 years of professional talent back again to The Kessler stage!

Sue Foley delivers her own brand of high energy, guitar driven Texas blues while premiering her new band, The Pistolas. Foley’s seasoned rhythm section responds to her every move as she sways, rocks, and digs in deep with equal parts ease and intensity.

In May 2024, Foley was awarded the Blues Music Award for Traditional Blues Female Artist (Koko Taylor Award) in Memphis – an award she also won consecutively in 2023, 2022 and 2020. She was also recently honored with Guitarist of the Year and Blues Act of the Year at the 2023 Austin Music Awards, and Guitarist of the Year at the 2023 Maple Blues Awards. Her last album, Pinky’s Blues, took home Best Traditional Blues Album at the 2022 Blues Music Awards.
