Ards Guitar Festival 2017

Sarah McQuaid
One of Europe’s hardest working and most talented fingerstyle guitarists, Sarah returns to Ards after almost seven years constantly on the road, performing for audiences throughout the USA, Europe and the UK.

Of one of her concerts last autumn, The Huffington Post wrote: “Finding treasure feels great, and such is the case with musician Sarah McQuaid. … I’ve attended hundreds of concerts of all kinds, and her subtle mastery onstage launches her straight into my fave shows ever. One voice, one guitar, and the wondrous reminder of the magic of music. Sarah has the gift.”

Sarah is playing a series of festival dates this year, while taking a break from her touring schedule to focus her energies on writing and recording a fifth solo album, as well as penning a sequel to The Irish DADGAD Guitar Book, the popular tutor she authored on the alternative guitar tuning she uses exclusively.

A special concert featuring three top acoustic talents in one unplugged and intimate performance.
