Sarah McQuaid

Support: The Bailey Sisters

Tickets £8
 
Rising star Sarah McQuaid’s voice has been likened to malt whiskey, melted chocolate and “honey poured into wine” Minor 7th. A captivating performer, she seduces her audience with cheeky banter and stories from the road, as well as with stunning musicianship; in her hands, the guitar becomes much more than merely an accompanying instrument. Sarah was born in Spain, raised in Chicago, holds dual US and Irish citizenship, and now lives in rural England. Refusing to be pigeonholed, she spans the genres with both her beautifully crafted originals and her interpretations of material from around the globe and down the centuries.

Harp and a Monkey

Support: Perry Berry


Tickets £6 

The harp ‘n’ banjo driven electro-folk-storytelling of Harp and a Monkey is imbued with a deep Lancashire sensibility that shines through in their beautifully crafted and sometimes spooky vignettes of northern life, love and remembrance. Expect to hear harps, banjos, glockenspiels, melodicas, electro beats and classic songsmithery colliding in a unique mash-up that is both deeply traditional and yet modern. Formed in 2008, the band have built up a strong following around northern England via relentless gigging - there is nowhere they've played where they haven't been invited back.
