Sarah McQuaid / Press

“A great songwriter and traditional singer, and a wonderful guitarist.”

“Brilliant musicianship, a warm and welcoming stage presence and a voice as rich, matured and knowing as the finest thrice-distilled Irish malt whiskey.”

“Sparkling guitar and compelling alto voice ... reminiscent of Pentangle’s best efforts ... a gentle and magical recording that I will return to time and again.”

“Likely to make the hairs stand up on the back of your neck.”

“An unreserved thumbs-up. Captivating performance, great songs, playing and singing. Sarah was also totally professional, charming and low maintenance. What more could you ask for?”

“Pure magic!! We are running our folkclub for 16 years now but I never experienced such a thrilling interaction between artist and audience.”

“We've never had a guest artist more thoughtful than you.”

“A world class talent ... burns with a brilliant allure. Lucid and quite magical at times, Sarah McQuaid transcends mere craftsmanship with inspiration and innovation on this record.”

“An album that should feature on many end-of-year best-ofs.”

“Low key but glorious and incendiary, the writing and performance keep you riveted throughout.”

“Highly recommended …buy it, buy it, buy it!”

“Truly profound and deeply emotive .... This is one for the keeping.”

“Impeccable.”

“An album that is every bit as good as it is ambitious, striking and remarkable.”

“Sarah’s albums are always a lavish affair, but this feels like her most complete to date, with class stamped all over it.”

“Folk music as it should be sung -- warm, gentle and real.”

“She sings with so much beauty – and with utmost respect for the folklore behind each song and ballad.”

“A must for everyone who loves a CD you can put on again and again, and never tire of it.”

“Quietly expressive and supremely affecting performances ... Not a weak link anywhere in earshot ... This is a truly lovely record.”

“Her singing has shades of Baez minus the operatic warble and Gillian Welch without so much Nashville twang.”

“A rare beauty of an album.”

“Beautifully spare ... a melancholy but somehow celebratory collection.”
