A gifted and captivating performer whose warm, haunting alto is delicately cradled by her "sparkling guitar" (Sing Out!). She is both song crafter and song collector, equally at home with traditional Irish and Appalachian folk songs, Elizabethan ballads and 1930s jazz numbers.

Support Mick West and Frank McLaughlin

Suppororting Sarah will be Mick West - considered by many to be one of Scotland's finest interpreters of traditional song, attracting worldwide critical acclaim - and Frank McLaughlin
"[Mick's] heart felt rendition of ?Kelvin?s Purling Stream? which was beautifully accompanied by Frank McLaughlin'.
Garden Sessions - The Royal Oak

The Gillebride MacMillan Band
Gillebr?de MacMillan has been described as having a voice "that wine writers would love to set their vocabularies loose on - mahogany richness with hints of sea salt, perhaps - and he has a way of singing in Gaelic that conveys the gist and tone of a song by subtle inflection".
