  9. Award Winning Nashville Singer-Songwriter, Claudia Nygaard

    October 11, 2019, 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

    Nygaard has won numerous awards for her writing, including the prestigious Kerrville Folk Festival songwriting competition, and she cut her songwriting teeth as a salaried staff writer on Nashvilles music row. She has always chosen art over commerce however, and walked away from the row job when it began to restrict her creativity. The choice has allowed her to become an emotionally fearless writer. From the sensual and seductive Tumblin Down and A Little Bit Embarrassed to the scrappy Ol Buick, and Stitches, and from the heartbroken Like A Moth and Oklahoma, to the anger and ache of Me Too and I Wonder, Claudia slices into stories like a surgeon with a fish knife scraping off scales and pulling back the flesh to expose the bones. These arent just songs she has written, they are stories, and her skill as a lyricist leaves the listeners of this album feeling like they have just watched thirteen little movies.
