Applause Rural Touring: Sarah McQuaid

Sarah McQuaid presents a varied, eclectic programme playing keyboard and drum as well as acoustic and electric guitars.

Born in Madrid (to a Spanish father and an American mother), raised in Chicago and holding dual Irish and American citizenship, Sarah McQuaid has made England her permanent residence since 2007. Her recent album features stunning solo performances by Sarah on acoustic and electric guitars, her lush, distinctive vocals echo through the soaring space.

“One of the most instantly recognisable voices in current music … Shades of Joni Mitchell in a jam with Karen Carpenter and Lana Del Rey.” —Trust The Doc.

“Stunning vocals, excellent live sound quality, engaging narrative with the audience – an all round musical treat.” – Claire Ayres, Beaford Arts.

“Sarah is perfect for VIA audiences – her chatting anecdotes build a lovely rapport and of course, her music is fab.” – Peter Tavy Village Hall (Villages In Action).

Applause Rural Touring are supported the Essex County Council Arts and Cultural Fund.
