Suzie Vinnick
10X Maple Blues Award winner, 3X Juno Nominee was a Finalist in the 2013 International Blues Challenge Solo/Duo Category in Memphis. Whether backed by her sweet Larrivee Guitar, or framed by her precise bass, Suzie's vocals jump to life in an extraordinary number of ways. While often a mainstay at our Workshop, this year Suzie will be taking her talents into the community as our "Blues in the School" instructor, community liaison busker as well as our private vocalist, song writer and guitar instructor. For sure she will be in the mix of our Blues Week show sets.

Suzie says she would be happy to instruct/coach you on any of the following:
- get feedback on a song
- figuring out a guitar part or bass line for your song
- finding the right key for or a harmony for a song
- writing a chart for your song
- general questions about the music business

One of Canada's premier
Blues instructional camps

The Hornby Island Blues Society believes that music creates community, and Blues and Roots music energize the spirit and inspire attitude. In 2013 we continue our unique workshops where we invite a dozen or so of the finest Canadian Blues and Roots musicians around to share their knowledge and inspiration with those 70 students fortunate enough to have successfully registered for the camp. Our workshops cover a variety of instruments and blues playing styles and with our small class sizes, students get a hands-on instruction that is at the heart of all successful learning.
