sue krider bio
Born and raised on the beaches of Southern California, Sue has also lived in Phoenix, Dallas, near Nashville, and finally back to Tucson. While in Tennessee she met and married Mark Krider, and was immersed completely into the world of Bluegrass music which surrounded them.
Sue comes to Bluegrass by way of a diverse musical history. Barely out of diapers, she first learned to play the accordion, inspired by her grandmother's playing. That lasted less than a year, when her best friend's mother decided to give piano lessons and Sue wanted to pursue that instrument. This lasted for many years, along with brief stints in the school band playing flute, and the mandatory teenage guitar years. Husband Mark encouraged her to play the upright bass, which she has come to enjoy, as well as dabbling in guitar and fiddle.
