Acclaimed folk singer-songwriter Sarah McQuaid is set to play at Irvine Folk Club next month.

Born in Spain to a Spanish father and American mother, Sarah grew up in the USA, lived in Ireland for many years and since 2007 has been based in Cornwall.

She has released six critically acclaimed solo albums, the most recent of these being 2021’s The St Buryan Sessions, recorded and filmed live - without an audience - in the beautiful medieval church of St Buryan, just over a mile from Sarah’s home.

Under the band name Mama, she also recorded the 2008 album Crow Coyote Buffalo as a duo with Zoë Pollock, writer and performer of 1991 UK Top 5 hit single “Sunshine On A Rainy Day.”

More recently, she has joined forces with Tim Norman of 1990s acid and ambient dub duo UVX (Ultraviolet Explorer) for “If We DUB Any Deeper It Could Get Dangerous”, a new remix of the title track from her 2018 album If We Dig Any Deeper It Could Get Dangerous.

Sarah will play at Irvine Folk Club in Vineburgh Community Centre on Wednesday, May 17.

Tickets cost £8 (members £6) and the doors open at 7.30pm for an 8pm start.
