Sarah Scouten


Live At The Library welcomes Canadian folk and Americana songwriter Sarah Jane Scouten (duo show with Robbie Caswell-Jones).

Sarah Jane Scouten is a Canadian folk and Americana songwriter. Her songs pay their respects to 60s and 70s country songwriters Willie Nelson, John Prine, Bobby Gentry and weave in British folk revival elements with a continuous thread leading back to her roots in bluegrass and old time music. After a transformative four years, training as a herbalist in the hills of southwest Scotland, Sarah Jane is releasing her fifth album Turned to Gold (Light Organ Records). Sarah Jane offers a new depth and solidity as a songwriter. With producer Johnny Payne's (The Shilohs) gift for modern vintage arrangement, this is destined to be your next favourite road trip album.

4x Canadian Folk Music Award Nominee

“An agile voice, ruminative songwriting, and love for classic country, indie pop, and everything in between.” - American Songwriter

10 Best New Country Songs (Acre of Shells) - The Fader

"Scouten's songs offer honest, poignant and at times humorous lyrics that reveal the artist's personal insight and knack for storytelling." - Exclaim

"Her songwriting is stark, often reminiscing back to the frontier era with its more primitive narratives." - Saving Country Music

"Sarah Jane Scouten does whatever the hell she wants!" - The Georgia Straight

 "In the style of Nanci Griffith’s best music, Scouten’s songs are filled with sturdy melodies, and the performance – featuring everything from bluegrass picking to bar-band shuffle and burning-ballad intensity – was memorable." - Montreal Gazette

"Delightful, keenly authentic retro classic country sounds." - The Calgary Herald

"She has the rustic rhythm and scrape that puts a groove under songs." - Herald Scotland

"Stan Rogers was able to do it, Ron Hynes was able to do it, Kate McGarrigle was able to do it – and Sarah Jane Scouten is able to do it." Tom Power, CBC q

Note that this will be a mainly seated show.

Live At The Library is supported by funding from Arts Council England.
