Sarah McQuaid to Perform October 3

The Niobrara County Library presents Spain-born, American-raised and UK-based singer/songwriter Sarah McQuaid on Thursday, October 3 at 6 p.m. at the Congregational Church. McQuaid is touring the USA and UK throughout the fall.

Produced by guitar legend Michael Chapman, Sarah’s fifth solo album If We Dig Any Deeper It Could Get Dangerous is distributed worldwide by Proper on LP as well as CD, and has received rave reviews worldwide: Dutch music magazine Heaven hailed it as “an early contender for folk album of 2018,” the UK’s fRoots said it was “a collection to savour” and the USA’s PopMatters called it “a gateway into a true innovator’s soul.”

“I’m really looking forward to getting out on the road again,” says the singer, who recently won a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Ards International Guitar Festival; electric guitar, piano and drum also feature in her arsenal of instruments onstage.

“But it’s all been short little trips out, so it’ll be great to be finally getting my teeth into a proper tour. The US tour is coast-to-coast — we start off in North Carolina, then head northwest to Colorado via St Louis and on to Idaho and Oregon, then down into California, then back east again through Wyoming, Iowa, Illinois and Indiana to South Carolina and Virginia, then north up the east coast, finishing with a week of New England gigs – so we’ll see a massive range of different terrains and landscapes. I can’t wait!”

Library programs are free and open to the public, for more information about the artist visit and call the library at 307-334-3490 with questions.
