Suzzanne Vega kicks off Oakville Centre Season

Suzanne Vega performs at The Oakville Centre on Saturday, September 20 at 8:00 pm. Tickets are available online at or by calling 905-815-2021 or Toll free: 1-888-489-7784.

“Widely regarded as one of the most brilliant songwriters of her generation,” (Biography Magazine)

Suzanne Vega emerged as a leading figure of the folk-music revival of the early 1980s when, accompanying herself on acoustic guitar, she sang what has been labeled contemporary folk or neo-folk songs of her own creation in Greenwich Village clubs. Since the release of her self-titled, critically acclaimed 1985 debut album, she has given sold-out concerts in many of the world’s best-known halls.

In performances devoid of outward drama that nevertheless convey deep emotion, Vega sings in a
distinctive, clear vibrato-less voice that has been described as “a cool, dry sandpaper-brushed near-whisper” and as “plaintive but disarmingly powerful.”

Suzanne’s neo-folk style has ushered in a new female, acoustic, folk-pop singer-songwriter movement that would include the likes of Tracy Chapman, Shawn Colvin, and Indigo Girls. Suzanne Vega is full of stories and surprises: the everyday revelations, the grabbed-on-the-run wisdom, the strange, random, miraculous stuff that make up a singular career – or maybe just another life in the big city.
