She has been singing and playing Cornish Folk songs as "Sue White" since moving to Cornwall in 1979. She has played in clubs, concerts, folk festivals, in UK and abroad as well as on local and national radio.
Sue loves all things Cornish, and Cornwall is her favourite place. When she lived in North Cornwall from 1979 to 1996 she regularly played all over the county, in hotels, pubs, art centres, medieaval banquets, beer festivals and many chapel suppers! She also had her two beautiful children there, and had quite simply the best years of her life in Cornwall and with its people.
Sue is still frequently requested and played on BBC Radio Cornwall to this day.
The White Rose
Sue's version of "The White Rose" is on both her Cornish CDs. It was, she has been told by his widow, one of Rick Rescorla's favourite versions of a favourite song, and he played it whilst singing and dancing around the room with his young daughter in his arms. Sue is very touched to know this.
