Former New Yorker Susanna Carman is a singer-songwriter, storyteller and multi-instrumentalist who is set to deliver her first ‘open to the public’ performance in the region. She launched the April release of her new album, Circus Girl, with two local house concerts, followed by four months of extensive touring in both Australia and the US. On 10 November, Susanna returns to Mullumbimby with her friends, Greg Sheehan and Steve Berry, for a live show at the Mullum Bowlo. The event promises to be an unforgettable and delightful evening of inspired entertainment.

In lounges and intimate venues in Australia and across the US, Susanna offers fans a combination of catchy original songs, self-accompanied quality instrumentalism and amusing and poignant storytelling. Her songs and stories take audiences on a very satisfying journey that include travelogue, tragedy, tears and a few full-bellied laughs. All from a universal perspective that is inclusive and enjoyable for the young and old.

See Susanna at the Mullumbimby Bowls Club on Novermber 10.
