Rising folk star Sarah McQuaid sets out this April on tour across Ireland and Northern Ireland - McQuaid will feature in Moran’s Bar, Clonmel on April 18th.
Sarah McQuaid’s voice has been likened to malt whiskey, melted chocolate and “honey poured into wine”. A captivating performer Sarah McQuaid 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.
Sarah’s 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 the 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”.
Sarah McQuaid features on April 18th at Moran’s Bar, 7 Parnell Street, Clonmel at 9.30pm (doors 8.30pm). Phone: 087 291 3484.
