Sue and Dwight

Sue and Dwight

Socially conscious contemporary folk music with a few twists.    

  • Songwriters, singers, musicologists, authors, advocates, activists.    
  • 3 CD releases including For A Moment (2016).    
  • Creators of Canada’s only tribute to the 60’s folk revival,‘Where Have All the Folk Songs Gone’.    
Born too late to be part of the 1960’s folk revival, Winnipeg born, Toronto based songwriters Sue and Dwight embody the musical spirit of that time. Their songs about the prairies, life in the big city, and travels in East Africa impart human stories of peace, courage, and social justice in their own unique Canadiana style. Sue and Dwight like to connect with audiences wherever they are. They have 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, young students, and farmers…in villages, school yards and fields in Malawi, Tanzania and Uganda. For the past decade they’ve been fixtures on the Toronto Music Scene. This features a six year weekly residency at Toronto’s Cameron House and a current five year stint at the Free Times Café with their 1960’s folk revival show, ‘Where Have All the Folk Songs Gone’. Sue and Dwight also perform in the TTC’s busker program. Their 3rd CD, For A Moment (2016), reflects on the multitude and diversity of moments that touch our everyday lives. Their latest single, ‘When They Came for the Others’(2017),calls out the current xenophobia festering in our society.
