Oh SusannaFriday, January 05, 2018
While my wife was watching the Golden Globes I wrote up a few blogs and retired to our comfortable bed to share some quiet time with our cat, Casi-Casi. As things now happen in this century it was too much idle time. I had finished Jerome Charyn’s Winter Warning the previous day and I was not yet ready to start a new book.
So inevitably I went to my phone to check up on Trump on CNN. I spotted a page mentioning January concerts featuring guitar player Stephen Fearing. I noticed that his special guest is Oh Susanna which is the musical name of Vancouver native Suzie Ungerleider. I had suspicions.
In my files I found: Ungerleider, Suzzie – December 2000.
I have almost no recollection of the shoot and I have particularly no idea why I photographed Ungerleider with the toys and the bicycle on the lawn. Might I have placed it there for effect? The horizontal version I shot with Kodak b+w Infrared Film.
I am pleasantly surprised that Ungerleider has not only survived and flourished but that her latest album A Girl in Teen City is nominated for three Canadian Folk Music Awards!
