Sarah McQuaid in Concert

Event information

Sarah McQuaid’s voice has been likened to malt whiskey, melted chocolate and “honey poured into wine (Minor 7th). Her new album Walking Into White is her most honest and adventurous work to date, with a depth and texture of soundscape that are reflected in her beautifully crafted live shows. A captivating performer, she seduces her audience with cheeky banter and stories from the road, as well as with stunning musicianship; in her hands, the guitar becomes much more than merely an accompanying instrument. Born in Spain, raised in Chicago and now living in rural England, Sarah refuses to be pigeonholed, segueing easily from one of her emotive originals into a 1930s Cuban jazz number, a 16th century lute piece or an unexpected contemporary cover. Like its predecessors, her fourth solo CD has drawn international critical acclaim: “Sending out a trembling resonance, this is a collection of songs that feel their way into your being, wrote FolkWords (UK), where it was nominated for Album of the Year.
