Sarah McQuaid has announced an extensive UK tour, which includes a whopping twenty dates starting in the South West on November 4th. The tour has been announced despite “sky-rocketing costs for artists” because “Live events are what bring communities together.“. Her most recent album was the ‘St Bunyan Sessions’ recorded in a church in Cornwall.
“Yes, these are seriously tough times for all musicians, myself included,” the Cornwall-based singer/songwriter says ruefully, “but live events are what bring communities together. If we don’t keep going out and doing it, all those music venues and village halls and arts centres are just going to disappear — and that would be a real tragedy.“.
Last year Americana UK caught up with McQuaid about her ‘St Bunyan Sessions‘; you can read the full interview here.
