Give Peace A Chance
Sixties Folk Tribute Concert
Featuring musical guests Sue & Dwight
Popular folk singing duo Sue and Dwight return to the Miles Nadal JCC this spring! This in-person tribute concert will feature timeless songs of peace, love, freedom and hope written by legendary folk musicians Pete Seeger, Peter, Paul and Mary, Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs, Joan Baez and more. Let us raise our voices together in song, and “imagine all the people living life in peace”.

Thursday June 6
Admission: $10

Born too late to be part of the 1960’s folk revival, Winnipeg-born, Toronto-based singer songwriters Sue and Dwight embody the musical spirit of that time. Their songs about the prairies, life in the big city, and travels in East Africa impart human stories of peace, courage, and social justice in their own unique Canadiana style. Sue and Dwight have released three CDs of their own songs and are fixtures on the Toronto Roots music scene. In 2012, Sue and Dwight developed the musical show “Where Have All the Folk Songs Gone”, a 1960′s Folk Revival tribute show that transported audiences back to the coffeehouses of that special time and that era of hope. During the pandemic, they continued bringing their music to audiences virtually through their weekly Wednesday Living Room Live. A crowd favourite at the JCC for years, Sue & Dwight performed the sold-out concerts: Singing for Social Change: Women Musicians of the 1960s and 70s; The Greatest Hits of Peter, Paul and Mary and Leonard Cohen & Bob Dylan: The Two Jewish Folk Poets and we are overjoyed to finally welcome them back to our building this spring! For more information, visit https://sueanddwight.com/bio
