Little Child Big World

an interview with Sue and Dwight

Live Music Head





With  your weekly Saturday afternoon gig at The Cameron House, busking at TTC subway stations, performing at music festivals and touring western Canada, not to mention East Africa, and also recording a new cd, are you worn out by all this, or do you find yourselves energized by your musical life?  Dwight, you even hold down a day job. 


Sue

Dwight
