Album Notes
"Sue West plays guitar, sings, and writes songs, finding deep inspiration in the wild and rural places of Wisconsin."

CD Review of 2008's Sue West Live:
"Just when I despaired that authentic folk music was eliminated from our culture, here it is, alive and well, and extremely alive and well done...In the very wonderful old time folk way, Sue has not only written some incredibly beautiful songs, she also performs them incredibly well. I haven't heard a good "folk" cd in a long time, and this one redeems all the lacking I've had. I love her voice, it's that very nice, gentle, tremulous, beautiful quality one expects in a good folk singer...Sue has accomplished what many folk singers only wish they could accomplish...A finely honed cd of simply wonderful songs done in a simply wonderful way..submitted to the Rural Roots Music Commission for 'Folk CD of the Year' award...all the music you do is well done." words of Bob Everhart, National Traditional Country Music Association, Tradition Magazine, in cd review of 2008 "Sue West: Live at Hot Spot Coffee Shop."

Kind words from eatingliberally.org's "kat:"

"I’m not sure what to call this musical genre: green bluegrass? Low carbon country? Whatever it is, I love it, and I think a lot of other people would embrace Wisconsin singer Sue West’s green-tinged, gospel-flavored folk music, too; it’s an authentic, timeless kind of music that hugs you back...I’ve never been to Wisconsin, don’t know that I’ll ever have a chance to go, but thanks to Sue West and her determination to share the “peace, joy, and healing” that she finds “in nature and in my own sustainable farming efforts,” I can be transported to a rural community with whom this diehard New Yorker has more in common than conventional wisdom might suggest. And after all, who’s more in need of a soothing sustainable soundtrack than us harried city dwellers?"

About the Rush River Ramblers:

"Hoedown music for your ears"
Volume One, 11/15/08

"Everyone seems to be having a really good time even on the breaks. If you get a chance see and hear the Rush River Ramblers. I believe you should they are really GREAT! It was fun to watch people dancing in the yarn shop...what a GREAT group! everyone had such a good time! Where else but Elmwood can you dance in a yarn shop. Erik is a really good clogger, Everyone loved watching him clog. " -Highland Hollow Emporium blog, 2006

"There’s also musical entertainment by groups such as Capital City Brass and the Rush River Ramblers on Saturdays during summer. ..."

feel good
I like These folk songs. They make me feel good. I am from Germany and a friend sent me Sue Wests music. This music reminds me of a better time. It reminds me of a time when people had less troubles and when things were simpler on this earth. I love this music! 5 stars from me. Nobody else sings and plays just like this anymore today!
