Claire Nordstrom already has quite a career for such a young artist; she has performed as a soloist with Andrea Bocelli, at Madison Square Garden and on a brief West Coast tour, and is featured on Bocelli’s album, My Christmas. Nordstrom also sang the National Anthem at a Seattle Seahawks game and is a regular performer at local private and charity events. If you would like to be added to the restaurant’s newsletter about upcoming music events at the restaurant, you can send a direct message to The Draycott on Instagram.
