Versatile And Beguiling Sarah McQuaid Tours Across The USA

Versatile and beguiling, Sarah McQuaid celebrates tradition with her elegantly crafted original songs and melodies. Drawing from Irish and Appalachian folk songs, Elizabethan ballads and 1930s American jazz, her music is grounded by an eloquent earthy voice and a distinctive guitar style that together deliver a powerful emotional punch.

 Born in Madrid and raised in Chicago, Sarah studied in France, then lived for years in Ireland and is now settled in Cornwall, England.  Her music reflects the eras she has studied and the places she has been. Unique in character, Sarah ignites thoughts and themes with beauty and grace. Her music strikes a chord in our hearts with sparkling guitar backing and velvet-tinged vocals. (

In 2010, Sarah re-released her first two albums ( When Two Lovers Meet and I Won’t Go Home ’Til Morning) in a double-disc package for the North American market. It became the No. 1 album, and Sarah the No. 1 artist, on the Chart for February 2010. Taking in 20 concerts in 23 spring days, including Boston’s Club Passim, upstate New York’s Old Songs and Nashville’s Bluebird CafĂ©, her debut USA tour was a great success. Now she's coming back!
