Art of the Song Interview & Concert with Claudia Nygaard
November 13, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
“Claudia Nygaard’s music invitingly straddles the fence between country and folk with a band sound that is decidedly unplugged and artfully laid-back in support of her sensually lyrical alto. And then, there’s the matter of her songs—that rival the likes of Guy Clark or Ian Tyson.” ~Sing Out Magazine

A little more about Claudia:
With a voice as warm and smooth as amber honey and impressive for both its power and intimacy,
Claudia Nygaard delivers songs that are heartfelt, humorous, scrappy, and sensual. And so are the stories in between them. She is a captivating storyteller, with a twinkle in her eye that makes everyone in the audience think she is sharing a secret with them alone. Emotionally fearless, she shares her deepest sorrows with a rare vulnerability and tenderness one moment, then a quick wit and an outlandish, irreverent sense of humor the next.
As a salaried staff songwriter on Nashville’s Music Row, Nygaard learned her craft well. Her latest CD “Let The Storm Roll In” rose to #1 on the Cashbox Roots/Coun- try chart and #8 on the Folk DJ chart. Two of the songs, “Georgia Boy” and “J.C.” won the Kerrville, TX Folk Festival “New Folk” songwriting competition for her, but they weren’t the only songs that radio took a liking to. EVERY song on the album received airplay. “Storm” was also highly praised by the press. It received five stars from Americana benchmark magazine “Maverick”, and legendary folk music magazine “Sing Out” claimed the songs “rival the likes of Guy Clark or Ian Tyson”.
