Media Advisory: The blues hits Sounds in the City
  
Nathan Phillips Square hosts Sounds in the City presented by Scotiabank, a
weekly Wednesday lunchtime concert series. Presenting a diverse spectrum of
Canadian music that includes roots, jazz, reggae, Celtic and country rock,
Sounds in the City is complimented by Toronto's famous Farmers' Market allowing
audiences to shop after taking in the concert. Sounds in the City runs every
Wednesday from July 2 to August 27 between noon and 2 p.m.

This week showcases Juno Award-winning blues guitarist Sue Foley. The
Canadian-born musician is a musical force. Where The Action Is, Foley's 7th and
current disc, shows her skill with blues. The Los Angeles Times said "Echoes of
Earl Hooker, Bessie Smith, T-Bone Walker, Muddy Waters, and other forebearers
of the blues filtered through the cannon of singer, songwriter and guitarist
Sue Foley." Foley has shared the stage with such legendary blues icons as BB
King, Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown and the late John Lee Hooker.


Date: Wednesday, July 9

Performance by: Sue Foley

Time: Noon to 2 p.m.
