Sarah McQuaid in Rockville Tonight!

Don’t miss the chance to hear singer-/guitarist Sarah McQuaid in concert Monday, Nov 1, in Rockville as she interprets traditional Irish and Appalachian folk songs, Elizabethan ballads, 1930s jazz numbers, surprise covers and lively guitar instrumentals with panache and poignance.
Born in Spain, raised in Chicago and holding dual Irish and American citizenship, Sarah spent 13 years in Ireland, where she became a weekly folk music columnist for the Evening Herald and a contributor to Hot Press magazine. She is also the author of The Irish DADGAD Guitar Book, described by The Irish Times as “a godsend to aspiring traditional guitarists,” and has presented workshops on the DADGAD tuning at festivals and venues around the globe.

Her first two CDs were recorded in Dublin, produced by Gerry O’Beirne and include Liam Bradley, Maire Breatnach and Rosie Shipley as guest artists. When re-released as a double-disc package it became the No. 1 album, and Sarah the No. 1 artist, on the chart for February 2010.

Visit for a video of Sarah in concert at the Hawk’s Well Theatre, Sligo, Ireland, 18 April 2009 with special guest Cathy Jordan (of Dervish)
