Subject: RE: Sarah McQuaid
I'm not easily impressed (our club is famous for turning down Paul Simon in '65 you know) but reviewing her last album for Living Trad. mag. - probably about 18 months ago now, I knew instantly that here was something special. Hers was a new name to me prior to that, but despite preferring, in a perfect world to see people play in person prior to a gig (we HAD seen Simon and weren't inspired!) I took a chance and am glad that I did. How many CDs did you shift that night Sarah? - suffice to say the audience agreed with me, she's coming back and I'd say go and see her, book her, buy her lunch - anything but don't miss out. You owe it to yourselves. Trust me - I know these things!!!!
