Episode 47 – Susie Garcia

Suzanne Garcia is better known as “Susie” to all her fans, friends, and family, and if you are not laughing, crying, smiling, or dancing when she is onstage, then she thinks that she hasn’t done her job. With a keen ear for music, she began playing violin as a child. With the encouragement of her parents (both avid Mariachi fans and music aficionados), Susie was introduced to a genre of music rooted in tradition and cultural pride.

It’s all about the conversation!

We also invite guests who are experts in business, lifestyle, education, culture and more. The goal to entertain listeners and inform the music community of issues important to them.
