BYOB – no bar at this beautifully restored building that started life in the 15th century as a medieval house and was transformed in the early 18th century into a Baptist chapel, possibly the oldest of its type still in exis tence. No parking at the venue; nearby car parks (Abbey Lawn and St Mary’s Lane) are free after 6pm. This event is kindly promoted by Mike Weaver of Armandaleg Music and will be Sarah McQuaid's fourth visit to the Old Baptist Chapel.
“One of the most instantly recognisable voices in current music … Shades of Joni Mitchell in a jam with Karen Carpenter and Lana Del Rey.” —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.
