Sarah McQuaid Live in Concert + VIP Q&A Experience

September 15 @ 7:00 pm10:00 pm CDT

Sarah McQuaid, author of The Irish DADGAD Guitar Book (first published in 1995 and still selling worldwide) and winner of a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Ards International Guitar Festival, will be performing at Scarritt Bennett Center* live in Harambee Auditorium on September 15, 2023. Concert will begin at 7PM.

Sarah has presented workshops on both songwriting and the DADGAD guitar tuning at festivals, music schools, and academic institutions including the University of Limerick, Sidmouth Folk Week, Passim School of Music, and many more, including a 3-day residential guitar workshop at Halsway Manor in Somerset.

Her 6th solo album, The St Buryan Sessions, was filmed as it was being recorded live in the beautiful medieval church of St Buryan, and videos of all 15 songs are available on Sarah’s YouTube channel.

VIP ticket option includes post-show soft drinks, finger foods, and a 45-minute Q&A session after the concert during which Sarah will be happy to talk about her life and career as a grassroots touring artist.

What the critics say:

“One of the most instantly recognizable voices in current music … Shades of Joni Mitchell in a jam with Karen Carpenter and Lana Del Rey.” —Neil March, Trust The Doc

“She reached parts other singers fail to do … There is emotion, beauty, passion, and musically great arrangements and fab playing. It’s a complete package. I loved the show and was very moved.” —Rob Bozas, Bozas International (Publisher, Peter Gabriel/Real World)

“Captivating, unorthodox songwriting … layered satin vocals … enthralling, harrowing arrangements … a gateway into a true innovator’s soul.” —PopMatters

“I’ve attended hundreds of concerts of all kinds, and her subtle mastery onstage launches her straight into my fave shows ever.” —Huffington Post

*Scarritt Bennett Center is an alcohol-free, tobacco-free, and firearm-free campus. These rules are strictly enforced.
