This week, we feature the live sounds of Swedish Canadian songstress Sarah MacDougall, in concert at Victoria’s Wood Hall during Breakout West. Four albums into her career, Sarah has found success both in Sweden, and right here in Canada. Just days after performing her Music West featured set, the Whitehorse-based musician took home the 2015 Western Canadian Music Award for Roots Solo Album of the Year.
The songs on that award-winning record, Grand Canyon, take inspiration from Sarah’s time working at a home for at risk youth. The record features collaborations with Rose Cousins, Jesse Zubot, and Leah Abramson of The Abramson Singers. This intimate set was recorded at midnight on the first night of Breakout West 2015, and includes songs from Grand Canyon, and Sarah’s 2011 album The Greatest Ones Alive.
