HONESDALE, PA — Claudia Nygaard will perform on Saturday, September 21 at 8 p.m. at The Cooperage, 1030 Main St. The suggested donation is $15 reserved, $18 at the door.

Nygaard is a former Nashville Music Row staff songwriter and a winner of the Kerrville, TX Folk Festival songwriting competition, whose latest CD “Let the Storm Roll In,” rose to the #1 position on the Roots Country Chart and #8 on the Folk DJ Chart. Every one of her self-penned compositions received airplay. The album received glowing reviews from the press that included five stars from Americana benchmark Maverick magazine. The legendary folk music magazine Sing Out claimed her songs “rival the likes of Guy Clark or Ian Tyson in their plainspoken, memoir-like quality, rich with personalized images and a resonant point of view.”

Call 845/252-6783, or visit www.riverfolkconcerts.vpweb.com or visit Nygaard’s website at www.claudianygaard.com. There will be light fare available for purchase from Willow River Gallery & Café and a raffle to benefit WJFF public radio. BYOB.
