NASHVILLE, TN…During these unprecedented times artists are going back to their roots more than ever, which for Grammy award-winning Suzy Bogguss, is sitting in the window seat of her Nashville area home with her acoustic guitar. On Friday, May 1 at 7:00pm Central, Bogguss will premiere her Window Seat Concertacross all social platforms as well as her website www.SuzyBogguss.com.
The concert will be pre-recorded with multiple cameras. “We live out in the country, so we can’t always count on our wifi!” says Bogguss. ”My husband, Doug Crider, and I are both creatives so we just wanted to have some fun using our phones and a camera to see what the two of us could come up with. We wanted to do something a little closer to the concert experience,” Bogguss states. “Like all artists right now, we are trying to deliver something that is compelling for the fans. I miss seeing them, and playing for them, so this is our way of sharing some music, and hopefully a little joy.”
With blossoming trees in the background, books, and family photographs lining the shelves, the setting illuminates an intimate view of Bogguss’ everyday life, in a way fans have rarely seen her before. She’s also got some ideas on the setlist, “I’ve been polling my followers for song suggestions and I’ll sing a few of those for sure, but since I’ve been home this month I’ve had the time to dig out some great old chestnuts.” Country hits from her platinum-selling album Aces, Merle Haggard staples from her album Lucky, and her own versions of classic folk songs are always crowd favorites during her live show. But if you know Suzy, there will be some surprises as well.
Fans may be a bit more familiar with American Folk Songbook these days, as Bogguss has been hosting Strummin’ with Suzy on Sunday afternoons, a series where she picks a classic folk song from her album and printed songbook and teaches a guitar lesson. Add on her Wine Down Wednesday each week where she goes live to chat with fans and you could say that she’s reaching people in a way like never before.
Suzy Bogguss: A Window Seat Concert will premiere on her YouTube channel, Facebook, Instagram, and www.SuzyBogguss.com on Friday, May 1 at 7:00pm Central time.
