Claudia Nygaard

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.

Claudia tours tirelessly, and has torn up the highways of all 50 states and performed in 9 foreign countries. She has appeared at over 200 fairs & festivals, including numrerous times at the Kerrville Folk Festival. She has also been an emerging artist at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival in New York. Her large fan base has recently supported her with a $25,000 kickstarter and she is now in the studio recording her next release (Jan 2019) "Lucky Girl", with Neilson Hubbard producing. Neilson has just been nominated for Album of the year by the Americana Music Association.

As a salaried staff songwriter on Nashville's Music Row, Nygaard learned her craft well. Her last CD "Let The Storm Roll In" rose to #1 on the Cashbox Roots/Country 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".

Grace Clark

Grace Clark performs Western and Western Swing music. She sings, yodels, and plays guitar & 5-string banjo. With her band, Grace Clark & Swingitude, she creates a lively and playful mix of cowboy songs, along with the swing and western swing dance music of the 1920's to the present. Added to the mix are Grace's original songs in those genres. She recently completed a new CD/EP, "Grace Clark, Dancin' with Swingitude." Grace has performed at a variety of venues, including the International Western Music Association (IWMA) Annual Gathering (Albuquerque, NM), the Western Swing Society Hall of Fame Celebration (Sacramento, CA), the Monterey Cowboy Poetry and Music Festival (Monterey, CA), the Northwest Western Swing Music Association Hall of Fame Celebration (Enumclaw, WA), the Salinas Rodeo "Cowboys and Cabernet" shows (Salinas, CA), live radio shows, restaurant concert series, Zoom concerts for the IWMA, and many others.

Two Crows for Comfort

Filled with rich harmonies, genuine, heart warming (and breaking) lyrics, Manitoba Country Music Association's 2019 Roots Artist of the Year, Two Crows for Comfort spins stories into songs and songs into stories. Accompanied by their two pups, Frankie and Elliot, the wandering duo hit the road in support of their latest album "Show Me Light". "Their show stands out as one of the most loved concerts I have ever had - people are still talking about them! Erin and Cory are super sweet and personable, have beautiful harmonies and are great storytellers. As human beings, they are lovely, and as musicians they are magic." (Julie Epp, Concerts for Claude)
