Event description

Description

With the release of her new album, If We Dig Any Deeper It Could Get Dangerous (2018) The HopBarn is delighted to host singer/songwriter Sarah McQuaid. Sarah who was born in Madrid, raised in Chicago and who is now based in Cornwall, has expanded her battery of instruments to include piano, electric guitar and drums, drawing international critical acclaim.

Inspired by her folksinging mother and her musician cousin Gamble Rogers, whom she first met at her grandmothers house in Indiana, Sarah toured from the age of 12 with the Chicago Childrens Choir. She then lived and worked in Ireland as a music journalist and magazine editor before venturing on her own solo music career and moving to Cornwall.

Having recently been awarded a Lifetime Acheivement Award by the Arts International Guitar Festival in recoginition for her use of the DADGAD tuning and her authorship of the Irish DADGAD Guitar Book, Sarah is an artist to follow. Guitar legend, Michael Chapman who collaborated with Sarah on her latest album, noted that Sarah has the 'precision and sophistication of writing and playing' that simply blows him away. Her voice too has been likened to malt whiskey and melted chocolate.

Sarah is clearly an artist to follow and The HopBarn is really excited to be able to bring such a highly praised musican to this rural part of England.

With its classy songwriting, exemplary musicianship and high production values, this is a collection to savour - fRoots, UK

A consummate artistic triumph that marks a new phase in McQuaid's career - Folk Radio UK
