Sarah McQuaid in Concert

“One of the most instantly recognisable voices in current music.” —Trust The Doc

 

Sarah McQuaid’s lush, chocolatey voice combines with her engaging personality, “subtle mastery onstage” (Huffington Post) and “brilliant musicianship” (fRoots) on acoustic and electric guitars, piano and (occasionally) drum to create a truly immersive experience.

 

Born in Spain, raised in Chicago, holding dual Irish and American citizenship and now settled in rural England, she brings the eclecticism of her background to her “captivating, unorthodox songwriting” (PopMatters) and choice of material, spanning genres and defying categorisation.

 

All this is abundantly demonstrated by her new live album and video series The St Buryan Sessions — but needs to be savoured in person to be fully appreciated.

Piaf

The Life Story and Songs of Edith Piaf

Award winning musical theatre actress Sally Jones pays a loving homage to EDITH PIAF with her critically acclaimed one woman show. She takes the audience through a roller-coaster of emotions, telling Piaf’s wild, tragic and dramatic life story – at times amusing, at times moving but at no time attempting an impersonation. A sentimental yet inspirational tale of a legend who will never be forgotten.

 

This stunning performance contains a beautifully crafted narration, telling the fascinating story of the iconic French singer EDITH PIAF. Not a typical tribute show, it is a perfect blend of wonderful stories, interesting facts, charming humour, moving moments and passionately performed Piaf classics including La Vie En Rose, Milord, Mon Dieu, Hymne a l’Amour and Non Je Ne Regrette Rien.

 

An evening not to be missed.
