Described by Belgium’s Rootstime magazine as “one of the greatest talents of our era,” Whitehorse’s Sarah MacDougall returns to the NAC for a special Canada Scene appearance. Known for her honest and poetic songs, passionate performances, and unique voice, Sarah writes from the point of view of the hopeful outsider trying to find her place in the world – songs about identity, love, fear, hope, and forgiveness.
Sarah has twice won the Western Canadian Music Award for Roots Solo Album of the Year (2012 and 2015), and has toured Canada and Europe extensively. Playing festivals as far flung as Iceland Airwaves, the Winnipeg Folk Festival, and the UK’s The Great Escape, she continues to create sonically rich music that pushes new boundaries.
This concert is part of Canada Scene’s free Scene@6 series. Running every evening at 6:00 from July 2 to 23, the series showcases this country’s top folk, roots, world, and jazz artists in the NAC’s new Atrium.
