Sarah McQuaid Tour Dates - Netherlands - Germany - UK - Ireland - USA

UK Dates - April + May + June + Sept 2013 - Promoting 'The Plum Tree & The Rose' CD
&
March 9th to 26th Touring Netherlands & Germany + April 21st to 27th Touring Ireland + Sept 28th to Nov 17th Touring USA



Renowned for her warm, engaging stage presence, Sarah McQuaid is a versatile and beguiling performer. Her unique voice delivers a powerful emotional punch that's matched by her distinctive, eloquent guitar style. In addition to her own elegantly crafted originals, she interprets traditional Irish and Appalachian folk songs, Elizabethan Ballads, 1930s jazz numbers, surprise covers and lively guitar instrumentals.

Her earthy voice delivers a powerful emotional punch that's matched by her distinctive, eloquent guitar style. Add this to a real rapport with her audience, and you have all the ingredients of a great night out. Sarah is also the author of The Irish DADGAD Guitar Book, described by The Irish Times as "a godsend to aspiring traditional guitarists," and has presented workshops on the DADGAD tuning at festivals and venues around the globe. Pictorial Bio for Sarah + World Wide Tour Dates + YouTube In Derby Cathedral 

The Plum Tree and The Rose has drawn critical acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic: The UK’s fRoots called it “impeccable,” Ireland’s Hot Press said it “should feature on many end-of-year best-ofs,” and Germany’s Folker wrote “Diese Frau hat Stil” (“This lady’s got style”). In the US, Seattle’s Victory Review hailed it as “truly profound and deeply emotive .... This is one for the keeping,” while Midwest Record described it as “low key but glorious and incendiary.”

The album was No. 3 on the Folk-DJ Chart for March 2012, and by April was No. 5 on the Euro Americana Chart; in June, it was No. 6 on the Roots Music Report Folk Top 50.

Produced by Gerry O’Beirne (Midnight Well, Patrick Street, Sharon Shannon Band) and engineered by Trevor Hutchinson (Waterboys, Lúnasa), The Plum Tree and The Rose represents a departure from Sarah’s previous albums in that nine of its thirteen tracks are originals. 

Although a thread of personal experience is woven into the material, Sarah truly shines as a teller of parables. Whether she’s recounting the life of 16th century businesswoman Bess of Hardwick or standing in Derby Cathedral and pondering the immortality of the soul, the specific detail subtly manifests a universal truth. These are songs that linger in the listener’s imagination.

ANDY GRIGGS LATEST PROJECT, NAKED, FEATURED AS “NEW & NOTEWORTHY” ON iTunes

ANDY GRIGGS LATEST PROJECT, NAKED,
FEATURED AS “NEW & NOTEWORTHY” ON iTunes 
  Download
Nashville, Tenn. (March 7, 2013) - Andy Griggs often says, “there is no defining a style of song. As long as there’s soul, it has a place in music.”  Griggs took these words to heart when he set out to record and produce his latest album, NAKED, which is all acoustic.

Country Weekly says “most listeners latch onto a song because of a melody, a voice or a lyric. So Andy Griggs did something really clever. He stripped away the high-tech production on his new album, Naked, and presents the things you love—a melody, a voice and an amazing stack of songs.”  Armed with just his guitar and accompanied by his earthy soul-filled vocals, Griggs penned original tunes for his new offering, as well as covered songs from artists that influenced him like Waylon’s “Old Timer” and Willie’s “Angel Flying Too Close To the Ground.” Country Weekly bestowed it with 4 stars, the highest rating Griggs has had on any album.

iTunes, the largest distributor of digital music puts it’s stamp of approval on the albums they believe to be significant additions to the musical landscape.  Griggs’ 13-song album is one such project that iTunes has deemed “New and Noteworthy” on their country page.

NAKED is available digitally on iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/naked/id598987879

NAKED Track Listing
1.    Old Timer
2.    Understanding Hank
3.    Heart Hush
4.    You and Cocaine
5.    Superman
6.    I Wonder Do You Think of Me?
7.    De’m Boyz
8.    Thrown Away
9.    Long Time Coming
10.  Angel Flying Too Close To The Ground
11.  Between an Old Memory And Me
12.  Blue Train
13.  Me On His Mind

"Witnessing this recording session solidified all of my beliefs about Andy’s undeniable talent and the sheer, transcendent power of music and fulfilled all my expectations,” says Griggs’ manager, Cathy Nakos. “One track, one singer/musician, raw, no frills, totally vulnerable, one engineer, no punching...it was magical and incredible to behold. How could one person/artist put himself out there for all to see, totally exposed, mistakes and all, but totally willing to sacrifice for the authenticity and soul-baring honesty and pure emotion of the songs. How could we title this album anything but NAKED?"

Griggs states, "I’m addicted to pure and raw feelings that’s as still and quiet as the wind. Throwing your heart out whether it’s healthy or broken! Exposing a hurting soul! Bearing and giving it all with that ol’ piece of wood and 6 strings! It’s underwear on the couch, singing until daylight! It’s vulnerability to yourself! It’s vulnerability to your friends! It’s vulnerability to a crowd of strangers! In short, it’s all about bein’ NAKED!"
