Big Mama Sue and Friends

Big Mama Sue and Friends

Big Mama Sue Kroninger, the warbling washboard thumper, always brings an interesting mix of musicians to the festival, and this is no exception. A Big Mama Sue group wouldn’t be complete without Mr. Excitement, Chris Calabrese, of Disney Japan fame, on piano. Rounding out the trio (as well as attending as a guest artist) is Fast Eddie Erickson, best bud of Sue & Chris for most of our adult and music lives.  The group will be joined by a number of friends during the festival:  both listed on the schedule, and surprise last minute additions.  Check us out!
