“Sarah MacDougall came from Sweden, at first, but now she is everywhere. You should go see her sometime." - Paul Corby - Roots Music Canada

Swedish-born but Canadian-based, Sarah MacDougall has been earning rave reviews and topping major music writers' top ten album of the year lists. A sturdy, heartfelt songwriter and a traveller, she is a true professional. Her music has been heard on several continents, and even at 40,000 feet on Lufthansa Airlines Playlist. She bares her soul in song, telling of love, loss, friendship, and other universal themes, drawing in the listener with her sweet, smoky resonating voice and acoustic guitar. Not one to stay put for long, Sarah is a road warrior, touring most of the year from the smallest town theatres to major music festivals, from everywhere in Canada to the UK, Germany, the Netherlands and Sweden. For her Regina appearance, Sarah will be accompanied by Tim Tweedale on lapsteel and MJ Dandeneau on bass.

Sarah released her debut album, Across the Atlantic, in 2009 to critical acclaim including four-star reviews in Q Magazine and the Irish Times. Her latest release, The Greatest Ones Alive (2011), is very nearly the perfect album with outstanding production, immaculate playing and moving lyrics. It is remarkably simple and beautiful and magnificently honest with confident and distinctive vocals that steal the show. Sarah currently makes her home in Whitehorse, Yukon.
