Note from your house concert host:   If you like Celtic and British Isles traditional music, then you will love both our opening act Vintage Wildflowers and headliner, Sarah McQuaid.  Expect, exceptional musicianship, coupled with lilting vocals and be transported to a place of castles and fields of heather.  Of course there might be a head chopped off or two.  :-) 
 

 

Rising star Sarah McQuaid’s voice has been likened to malt whiskey, melted chocolate and “honey poured into wine” (Minor 7th). 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.
Her musical output reflects her own eclectic background: Sarah was born in Spain, raised in Chicago, holds dual US and Irish citizenship, and now lives in rural England. Refusing to be pigeonholed, she spans the genres with both her beautifully crafted originals and her interpretations of material from around the globe and down the centuries. Sarah’s third solo album The Plum Tree and the Rose has drawn critical acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic: “Impeccable,” wrote fRoots (UK), while Midwest Record (USA) called it “low key but glorious and incendiary” and Hot Press (Ireland) said it “should feature on many end-of-year best-ofs.” “A great songwriter and traditional singer, and a wonderful guitarist.” — Mike Harding, BBC Radio 2, UK

“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
“Sparkling guitar and compelling alto voice ... reminiscent of Pentangle’s best efforts.” — Tom Druckenmiller, Sing Out!, USA
“Likely to make the hairs stand up on the back of your neck.” — Aled Jones, BBC Radio 2, UK
