Friday Night Live: Sarah McQuaid

Recently honoured with a Lifetime Achievement Award by the Ards International Guitar Festival, Sarah McQuaid has also drawn critical praise for her voice (which has been variously likened to malt whiskey and melted chocolate) and her engaging rapport with audiences:  “I’ve attended hundreds of concerts of all kinds, and her subtle mastery onstage launches her straight into my fave shows ever,” wrote The Huffington Post

Reviewers of the Madrid-born, Chicago-raised, Cornwall-based singer/songwriter’s previous albums have repeatedly alluded to her “relative obscurity” (The Big Takeover) and “under-the-radar” (The Vinyl District) profile. With her new album – on which she expands her battery of instruments to include piano and electric guitar – she looks set to change that.

“One voice, one guitar, and the wondrous reminder of the magic of music. Sarah has the gift.” – The Huffington Post

"The songs are acutely observed and literate, almost like journal notes set to music. They’re measured and tranquil but they’re never dull because there is always a sense of restlessness and unease behind the poetry.... And it’s all lovely.” – R2/Rock 'n' Reel
