PRINCETON — Suzzy Roche, the youngest of the Roche sisters (Maggie and Terre being the others), is best known for her work with the vocal group, The Roches. Their 1979 debut album with the same title has recently been listed by National Public Radio as one of the 150 Greatest Albums Made by Women.
On Saturday, Sept. 23, Roche will perform with her daughter, Lucy Wainwright Roche, at the Princeton Coffeehouse. The coffeehouse is located at Open Prairie United Church of Christ, 25 E. Marion in Princeton. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the concert begins at 7:30 p.m.
In addition to the musical lineage on her mother’s side, Lucy is also part of a extended and well-known musical family on her father’s side. She is the daughter of the Grammy Award winner Loudon Wainwright III. Her half-siblings are the singer-songwriters Rufus Wainwright and Martha Wainwright.
Suzzy and Lucy are appearing in Princeton as part of their fall 2017 Mother/Daughter/Dog tour. A dog along for the tour seems to be a tradition for Lucy: when she performed solo at the coffeehouse in 2014, her dog was – if not her accompanist – in attendance.
The sponsor of this month’s coffeehouse show is Bill Bouxsein. Tickets are $20. For reserved seating, contact Bill Beneke at 815-878-4805.
Fair trade coffee, tea and homemade desserts are available for purchase at the show. The coffeehouse offers traditional and modern folk, blues and bluegrass music, monthly August through May. For information on the rest of the 2017-18 season, visit www.theprincetoncoffeehouse.com.
