Camp Verde Community Library’s next free Special Concert Series is Thursday, Oct. 26 from 5:00- 6:30 p.m., featuring Sue Schnitzer.

Sue Schnitzer grew up dancing to AM radio rock and roll with her mom in the kitchen. She took the requisite piano lessons and when she was 12 used her own money to buy a shiny guitar for around $30. In her teens she started writing angsty songs and poems which she has in a few boxes but refuses to share. In college she got more serious about her writing and playing. After college, music took a back seat to work, but she never stopped playing and writing.

When she moved to Boulder CO in 1994 she began a career as a childrens' musician and songwriter. In 2012 she moved to western Colorado, became a librarian, started ukulele and songwriting groups, and then wound up in Memphis which had a booming ukulele scene and lots of opportunities to be immersed in music.

In March 2022 Sue retired to Prescott AZ and decided to shift her focus to music for adults. Her songs come from the heart - some are based on people or poignant events, others are fictional story songs. She plays covers, folk, originals, and a little this and a little that. She's enjoying living her best life, singing her songs, and occasionally touching hearts in the process.
