Recorded live at the legendary Continental Club in Austin, Texas. This electrifying
album captures all of the grit, sweat and devastating guitar playing that has
propelled Sue Foley to the top of the Blues world in 2023. Here, Sue reaches back
and delivers first-ever live recordings of some of her early hits, deep covers, and
some surprises too!
First arriving in Austin in 1991 at the urging of nightclub impresario Clifford Antone,
it’s in that era of Austin where she cut her teeth amongst infamous Texas guitar
slingers like Albert Collins and The Vaughan Brothers. It’s all come down to this
one hot Friday night in Austin, playing to a packed club. It’s real. And it’s tough as
nails. That’s Sue at the top of her game.
This past May, Foley was awarded the Blues Music Award for Traditional Blues
Female Artist (Koko Taylor Award) in Memphis TN -- an award she also won in 2022
and 2020. She was also recently honored with Guitarist of the Year and Blues Act
of the Year at the at the 2023 Austin Music Awards, and Guitarist of the Year at the
2023 Maple Blues Awards. Her last album, Pinky’s Blues took home Best Traditional
Blues Album at the 2022 Blues Music Awards.
