A live studio recording of songs from ‘Farewell Angelina’
(A tribute show to the iconic folk duo of the 60’s – Joan Baez and Bob Dylan).

Suzette Herft and Patrick Evans have been working together as a duo since late 2014. Whilst they are both award winning songwriters and performers in their own right, they discovered a special magic when they combined their talents. Together they create a magical musical experience with their blend of harmonies and instruments. Following on from Suzette’s successful tribute show ‘Shining’, that celebrates the life and times of Joan Baez through story and song, Suzette and Patrick thought that a show focusing on the story of the coupling of Baez & Dylan would be worth telling in its own right.

In 1963, as the reigning ‘Queen of Folk’, Baez’s endorsement of the young promising songwriter played a huge role in Dylan’s early rise to fame. Dylan states “…something told me that she was my counterpart, that she was the one my voice would find perfect harmony with…” (Chronicles. Vol.1.) These duets of Baez and Dylan resonated with audiences. We hope that these duets created by Suzette and Patrick, have struck a similar resonant note.

Roses

Suzette Herft

A new release by Suzette Herft, currently receiving rave reviews and produced by award winning producer and guitarist Shane O'Mara. Roses is a collection of songs from the highway of life... traversing grief and finding beauty... all amidst jangly guitars, and atmospheric twangy telecaster sounds, echoing the mood of Patty Griffin and the guitar work of our very own Buddy Miller and Ry Cooder (Shane O'Mara). It sits well in the Americana genre with great songwriting and sublime vocals from Suzette Herft.

Both Sides Now

Suzette Herft

This album is about the journey of mid-life. It is about finding yourself in a space that is not quite pleasant - looking back at what has been and what might have been; looking at where you are now and what is to come; asking for the grace to accept what is and the courage to move forward in hope - "something's lost but something's gained in living everyday" (Both Sides Now -Joni Mitchell)

Thanks to Hugh for his brilliant musicianship, friendship and production; Thanks to Kathryn and the crew at The Quiet Man for the great singing sessions and the opportunity to find my voice and share my songs; Thanks to my family for their unfailing support and optimism especially in my times of despair; And thanks to you who continue to support me in my music by buying my albums and coming out to hear me sing. My love to you all. Suzette.

Never Too Late

Suzette Herft

This was my debut album. It contains the songs that I had written in my early years and performed at various folk venues when I was first starting out. It also features one of the very first (proper) songs I wrote at the age of 19, which I still get requests for to this day... 'Song of a Refugee'.
