“The precision and sophistication of the writing and playing blows me away. I am so glad to be involved,” writes guitar legend Michael Chapman in his introduction to Sarah McQuaid’s fifth solo album If We Dig Any Deeper It Could Get Dangerous”.
Recently honoured with a Lifetime Achievement Award by the Ards International Guitar Festival in Northern Ireland, Flowerfield Arts Centre is thrilled to present this performance by Sarah McQuaid. Sarah draws critical praise for her voice (which has been variously likened to malt whiskey and melted chocolate) and her engaging rapport with audiences as well as the sincerity of her song writing.
With the release of her new album, the Madrid-born, Chicago-raised, Cornwall-based singer/songwriter has expanded her battery of instruments to include piano, electric guitar and drum, and it’s drawn critical raves internationally.
This is a warm “hug” of a show and one not to be missed.
“Seeing a shared world in a new way, from a different angle, is the role of the songwriter. Sarah gets a gold star on that front. This is a fabulous album.” —The Afterword
“A darkly melodic, richly layered folk tapestry … haunting and sparse, yet beautifully rendered … a voice as thick and soft as fur.” —Elmore Magazine
