Sue Jeffers is a folk musician firmly within the Arlo and Woody Guthrie tradition, combining political commentary
with more personal insights in her music. ..fans of traditional politically aware folk who appreciate Seeger
and the Guthries will be especially taken with Jeffers'' style, skill and subject matter. I''m glad to have encountered her music, and look forward to hearing more from her in the future.
This is Acid Folk and very original. Not any sort of repeat of other artists style or work. Sue Jeffers owns her music in the traditional style of those she is influenced by. And she does them both honor and growth.
