Sarah McQuaid was born in Madrid, raised in Chicago, and is currently living in rural England. Her voice has been likened to malt whiskey, melted chocolate and “honey poured into wine” (Minor 7th). Her new album Walking Into White (2015) 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.
Read on to learn what people are saying about Sarah…
“Brilliant musicianship, a warm and welcoming stage presence and a voice as rich, matured and knowing as the finest thrice-distilled Irish malt whiskey.” — Geoff Wallis, fRoots, UK
“Sarah was just fantastic – she had a sold out audience captivated from start to finish at Ards Arts Centre, County Down. A beautiful voice and technically accomplished player.” — Emily Crawford, Ards Arts Centre, Northern Ireland
“Bittersweet-but-beautiful songs that will seep into your heart like wine spilled on a tablecloth.” — Morgan Y. Evans, Kingston Times, USA
Some of Sarah’s past performance locations in the US include:
Club Passim, Cambridge, MA; The Bluebird Café, Nashville, TN; The Blue Door, Oklahoma City, OK; Uncle Calvin’s, Dallas, TX.
