sisters in song
Suzy Plays Guitar includes Minneapolis-based Kelsey Wyrd and Tricia Schweitzer. Their musical duet was born under the shining sun amidst the sweltering heat of summer in 2018.
Kelsey Wyrd has a tenacious musical background of piano and also plays bass + vox for the Rebel Queens. Her interest in songwriting and the electric guitar brought her to the reins of Suzy Plays Guitar. Kelsey is the lead guitarist, writing playful solos that bring never-ending magic to the Suzy sound.
Tricia Schweitzer is a singer, songwriter, and painter. The combined warmth of a beloved acoustic guitar with her sultry voice provides the solid groundwork of Suzy's songs. Tricia also has a background of piano where she plays in studio recordings for The Good Cousins.
Each Suzy song is co-written by Tricia and Kelsey. With each performance, Suzy Plays Guitar brings forth a blend of dueling vocal harmonies and sweet guitar melodies.
In 2019 Suzy performed at the Twin Cities Pride Festival and Women's Week in Provincetown Massachusetts.
2020 was a sad year.
We kicked off 2021 with a band trip to Georgia, the lovely Tybee/Savannah area, where we performed at Jazz'd Tapas bar. The Twin Cities Pride festival and Cedar Valley Pride gave us opportunities to perform on their main stages to make up for 2020. We enjoyed our musical homes, the local wine bars, in the fall and winter.
In 2022 Suzy recorded her first album at Minnehaha Studios.
