Sarah’s influences are many yet she is a true original, as were two other great artists from the UK folk tradition she has been compared with, Sandy Denny and Nick Drake. Folk enthusiasts will love her music, but she also has remarkable cross-genre appeal, as testified to by reviews of her recent work in Americana Highways, American Blues Scene and Punk News magazines!

If you enjoyed Illyria’s Pirates of Penzance last year, you’ll definitely enjoy this performance!
