Sarah’s voice and guitar merge together in perfect harmony to create a timeless vibe respectful of Bert’s legacy.
Sarah has reached the pinnacle of her career so far with what will be hailed as a magnum opus, perhaps even an Opus Dei by the church worshippers of St Buryan
‘The St Buryan Sessions’ will be released Friday, October 15 on CD and limited-edition double LP!
“On a rainy night in 1966 I went into a pub in Cornwall but I couldn’t afford to pay to go in. I said, I don’t want to stay outside in the rain, I’ll play the guitar for half an hour for you. They offered me a job for the rest of the summer and I’ve been at it ever since.”
McQuaid has that rare ability as a consummate musician and lyricist to make the space for each listener to reflect and to contemplate upon what is pure poetry
Sarah uses a cappella as a transcendental medium for telling her story and conveying its meaning with dramatic effect, power and grace
McQuaid explores a whole new world outside her traditionally acoustic domain to superb effect
If there is one song which captures the mood, spirit and turbulence of these troubled times it is “The Silence Above Us”
