Suzie Vinnick & Rick Fines will join forces to open for Downchild as special guests for the band’s 50th Anniversary show in Peterborough on Friday, November 22, 2019 at the Showplace Performance Centre for a NOT TO BE MISSED celebration of the blues!
The musical merging of Suzie Vinnick and Rick Fines was, and is, one of the best things to ever happen to the blues in Canada.
More than a dozen years and 15 albums later – and more awards both individually and combined than you can count – their magnificent songwriting and beautiful harmonies continue to thrill audiences across the country.
Fine’s brilliant finger-style, bottleneck and blues guitar playing and Vinnick’s amazing vocal range elevate the blues from merely heartbreaking to soul searing. Blessed with a huge range, Vinnick can go from a sweet whisper to a growl in a heartbeat, and her singing expresses all the emotions in the blues lexicon – sexy, humorous, sassy or heartbroken.
Between the two of them, they pen and perform some of the sweetest tunes imaginable. Their album Nothing Halfway is both soulful and rocking, taking the blues to sublime new levels with lyrics that will haunt you long after the last note has faded.
