  Sunday, June 26th,  Claudia Nygaard, 7:00PM

Starting out a singer in noisy bars and restaurants, Claudia has definitely paid her dues. But she learned how to engage the attention of an audience in those clubs, and later when she made her living on the county fair circuit she polished that skill into an art. Competing against generators and mainstage acts with huge sound systems, she learned to rely on her quick wit to keep the audience interested, and she became a captivating storyteller who has been aptly described as "Will Rogers without the rope". She has performed at over 150 fairs and festivals in 47 states and across Europe, and two years ago was chosen one of the Emerging Artists at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival in New York. Claudia’s voice alone could have provided her with a successful music career, but the slash between singer/songwriter is a very thin line when describing Claudia Nygaard.  After her years in the bars and riding the corn dog trail, she made the move to Nashville, and landed a job as a staff songwriter for Greenwood Music on Music Row. The job allowed her to focus on the craft of songwriting, and she learned it well. So well, her writing has won her numerous awards including the prestigious Kerrville Folk Festival Songwriting Competition “New Folk”. Reviewers are quick to praise her voice, but it is the songwriting that has everyone raving about the record. Check out some of the music available on her web site and I think you will be impressed.

I am requesting a $15.00 donation with all proceeds going to Claudia. For information and reservations email wjwagman@dcn.org or call (530) 753-3472.
