June 15: SARAH MACDOUGALL
Described by the magazine Rootstime in Belgium as ‘One of the greatest talents of our era”, Yukon- based 2-time Western Canadian Music Award winning artist Sarah MacDougall is respected and admired for her honest and poetic songs, passionate performances, and unique voice. Born in Sweden, Swedish magazine Noejesguiden declared her “One of Sweden’s best singer/songwriters”. The Globe and Mail touts her as a ‘Thoughtful, strong, and spiritual' performer.
Stepping outside of traditional folk and flirting with sounds that could have come from The Postal Service or Kate Bush, MacDougall keeps the acoustic guitar central and strong, but layers her sound with heavier drums and richly textured strings and synths.
MacDougall writes about identity, love, fear, hope, growing up, rootlessness, and forgiveness. Her songs are written from the point of view of the hopeful outsider, trying to carve out their place and make sense of the world.
Sarah has played festivals including Iceland Airwaves, Winnipeg Folk Festival, Edmonton Folk Festival, The Great Escape, and she has been featured on CBC’s vinyl Café. She has had her songs featured in the TV series The Vampire Diaries, and has toured, opened for and shared the stage with artists such as the Cat Empire, Lee Harvey Osmond, Bruce Cockburn, Tallest Man on Earth, Passenger, and many more.
