Music spuulied by IodaPromonet
Artist - Sussie Nielsen
Track 1 - Bay of Biscay
Sussie Nielsen was born in Copenhagen in 1975. In her early teenage years, Sussie became a fan of the music of Clannad. She had, at that time, no particular ambition as far as music was concerned, being mainly interested in the body and physical therapy; an interest which led to a qualification as physical education teacher and masseuse. Returning from her first trip to Ireland, Sussie brought home a heap of music, and began to sing and to play the bodhrán.
A steadily growing interest in the music, including sean-nós ( old style ) singing and gaelic song, led Sussie back to Ireland. In 2002, she started at the Irish World Music Centre, University of Limerick, where she took an M.A. in Irish Traditional Music Performance under the direction of Professor Michéal Ó Súilleabhain. Her teachers included many fine singers, among these being Padraigín Ní Uallacháin, Iarla Ó Lionáird, Karan Casey and Len Graham.
She has received excellent reviews and several nomination for the Danish Music Awards 2004 and 2005.
