SEPTEMBER ACOUSTIC NIGHT AT THE BAMA THEATRE WILL FEATURE SARAH MCQUAID
(Tuscaloosa, Ala.) Musician Sarah McQuaid will be featured in a performance on Acoustic Night on September 8, 2014 at 7:30 p.m. at the Bama Theatre. Presented by The Arts Council of Tuscaloosa, the project features both solo and ensemble performances of a wide range of acoustic music throughout the calendar year in the intimate setting of the theatre’s Greensboro Room. Cover charge is $10 with a full service bar available.
The voice of rising star Sarah McQuaid 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.
McQuaid’s musical output reflects her own eclectic background. She was born in Spain, raised in Chicago, holds dual U.S. 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 throughout the centuries.
Her third solo album, “The Plum Tree and the Rose,” has drawn critical acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic. “Impeccable,” wrote fRoots (U.K.), while Midwest Record (U.S.) called it “low key but glorious and incendiary” and Hot Press (Ireland) said it “should feature on many end-of-year best-ofs.”
