Wed 11th August: Sarah McQuaid in Concert

6pm picnicking/food vans and bar available

7.30pm performance start

Rosewood welcomes Sarah Mcquaid to the centre stage. Her award-winning musicianship, distinctive chocolatey vocals and mastery of the songwriting craft have led reviewers to describe Sarah McQuaid as a “triple threat”. Add to that a warm, charismatic stage presence, five critically acclaimed solo albums and a battery of instruments including acoustic and electric guitars, drum and piano — and you’ve got a one-woman powerhouse who defies categorisation because there simply isn’t anyone else out there quite like her. Not to be missed!

“One of the most instantly recognisable voices in current music … Shades of Joni Mitchell in a jam with Karen Carpenter and Lana Del Rey.” —Neil March, Trust The Doc
“She reached parts other singers fail to do ... There is emotion, beauty, passion and musically great arrangements and fab playing. It’s a complete package. I loved the show and was very moved.” —Rob Bozas, Bozas International (Publisher, Peter Gabriel/Real World)
“Captivating, unorthodox songwriting … layered satin vocals ... enthralling, harrowing arrangements … a gateway into a true innovator’s soul.” —PopMatters

		ROSEWOOD image

Rosewood provides a venue for South West based musicians and artists to perform as well as a place for experimentation and early stage work. It is rooted in the West Penwith landscape, set in the beautiful coastal setting of Lower Keigwin Farm which has a strong ethos of regenerative farming and community.

The platform is set within a large multiuse agricultural barn with sculptured amphitheatre seating. Nearby woods in the gorse lands provide a perfect environment for smaller events, projects, installations and community workshops inspired by this special place.

Rosewood is a non profit making organisation.

In accordance with Covid 19 directives Rosewood respects all guidelines.
