Sunday Supper Jazz Series with Susan Mooring & Steve Abshire
Elegant jazz standards, blues, and a few surprises are in store from this duo. Singer/songwriter Susan Mooring lends her smooth contralto to sultry ballads and bossas, but she can swing, too. She is accompanied by renowned guitarist Steve Abshire, longtime 49 West favorite.
Susan began her singing career at clubs in and around Boston. She became a fixture of the jazz scene in Portsmouth, NH, then in Richmond, VA, where she soloed with the Richmond Philharmonic. She currently lives in Silver Spring, where she performs regularly at Dominic’s Italian Grille. In the words of Pat White, host of John Starr’s 49 West Jazz Jam, “Susan Mooring is one the best singers to ever walk through this door.”
Steve Abshire has performed with jazz giants from Charlie and Joe Byrd to Louie Bellson and Stanley Turrentine and has accompanied vocalists from Rosemary Clooney to Etta Jones and Joe Williams. The Steve Abshire performs most weekends at the Stanford Grille in Columbia, MD.
