The Linden Tree Coffeehouse announces the 2021 fall concerts of its 37th season. We were hoping that live in-person shows would resume this fall, but unfortunately, we will be streaming our first show and then moving to a hybrid show with Covid rates determining the number of vaccinated folks who can attend in person. The Ivy Chord Coffeehouse is again co-sponsoring this season’s online concerts.
Nashville’s Claudia Nygaard will launch the series on Sat. Sept.18th at 7:30 pm. Audiences loved her singing, songs, and fun personality when she appeared on our stage a few years ago. Since then Claudia’s recent CD, LUCKY GIRL” has been one of the top Albums of the Year for Folk Alliance International Radio. Sing Out Magazine says, “Songs that rival the likes of Guy Clark and Ian Tyson.”
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 numerous times at the Kerrville Folk Festival. She has also been an emerging artist at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival in New York. Claudia’s music straddles the fence between country and folk.
Viewers can turn in to watch on Linden Tree’s shows with easy clicks to the concerts:
We hope that those watching will donate to the Linden Tree performers. When not able to get to live gigs, they still need to pay rent and their other living expenses. Our usual at-the-door admission is $20 pp thanks to partial support from Wakefield’s Art Council of the Massachusetts Cultural Council and the Ivy Chord Coffeehouse. Our previous streaming shows are still available on our website and youtube. Enjoy the show and pay what you are able. There will be a link to PayPal for Linden Tree when the concert airs and checks can be mailed to Linden Tree Coffeehouse, 8 Dexter Lane, Wakefield, MA 01880. Thank you!
