Lady Slings the Blues

From Ottawa to Austin, guitarslinger Sue Foley follows her blues muse

The East Coast tour behind Warning will be just one week old by the time Foley and her tour band -- Jon Penner on bass, Fredd E "Pharaoh" Walden on drums -- hit the Riverwalk. Fans and soon-to-be-fans await stops in New York, Maine, Boston. Yeah, she's still young, but Sue Foley appreciates how far she's come in a decade. "To play an instrument well," she says after pausing to think about it, "you really have to be driven by it. You have to give up a lot of stuff. I mean, I had no social life ever. Until I started gigging. And then everything bloomed. But when I was first practicing, I'd just stay in my room and play. And that's what I wanted to do. And it paid off. Big time."

Sue Foley performs at the Riverwalk Blues Festival at Bubier Park, Las Olas Boulevard and Andrews Avenue, Ft Lauderdale, at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, 761-5813. Admission for the festival is $10, or $25 for a three-day pass.
