Sarah MacDougall at Grateful Fred's

Sarah MacDougall is a Canadian singer songwriter who is making waves, not only in her home country, but also over here in England.  She was born in Sweden, and Canadian newspaper 24 Hours Vancouver described her as "one of the most promising exports out of Sweden since Abba".  Yes, well ... so, here's what else they're saying:
  • “She could make stone weep. Classic North American folk.” - Q Magazine ****
  • “Heartbreakingly beautiful” - Americana UK
  • "I love your album." - Bob Harris, BBC 2
She is appearing locally with Bob Hamilton on bass and Tim Tweedale on lapsteel at Grateful Fred's in the Freshfield Hotel, Massams Lane, Formby on Thursday 6 October.  Support is by British singer songwriter, Steph Fraser.  The Freshfield has a good range of real ales. 

Tickets on line here, and as some recent G/Fred events have been sold out, advance purchase may prevent disappointment.
