Susan Cohen:
Susan has played extensively in the New York metro-area performing country, rock-oldies and folk music in clubs, bars and coffee houses for more years than she cares to admit. After studying classical flute and piano, Susan took up guitar to accompany her unusual voice, paying her way through college by teaching music and playing with a local bluegrass band. Despite her college degree, Susan worked with Al Aronowitz to produce the Country in New York concert series and also opened for Buck Owens and Merle Haggard. Throughout all this Susan's creative song writing side was gaining more and more steam and what started out as a trickle of interesting songs has burgeoned into a flood of fine music. She is a regular performer on the radio show �Positively Dylan� and co-hosts acoustic jam sessions on Long Island.
