Susan O’Neill aka SON
SON is the stage name of Susan O Neill, a woman who merges through song, a transnational melding of musical styles, encompassing the old and new. The basis of her first album ‘found myself lost’ saw Susan being favourably compared with the likes of Janis Joplin, Amy Winehouse, a ‘ballsier’ Adele and Florence Welch.
SON is touring Oz & performing at Port Fairy Folk Festival, Blue Mountains Music Festival, Hobert Spiegeltent, Newcastle Spiegeltent, National Folk Festival, Fairbridge Folk Festival – WA and Gum Ball Festival – Hunter Valley.
SON was booked as a headliner at Cobargo folk festival 2020 however the bushfire disaster has seen the festival postponed while the Cobargo community rebuilds.
We will be fundraising for the Cobargo community on the night.

The star of her (Sharon Shannons) show was a slip of a colleen called Susan O’Neill, who possesses pipes that would give Janis Joplin a run for her money.
Here is a video of SON filmed at Cobargo in 2019 https://www.facebook.com/cobargofolkfestival/videos/388639291809917/?v=388639291809917
