Sarah McQuaid is proud and happy to be an Elixir Strings endorsed artist, alongside the likes of Richard Thompson and Newton Faulkner. “I love the evenness and clarity of toneelixir_s_p_d_c.jpg of the Elixir strings,” says Sarah. “I'm privileged to play a beautiful custom-made guitar by Andy Manson, and when I use these strings I know they're doing it justice.”

Between the eight-week September-October US tour I’ve just finished, the four-week UK tour I‘ve already embarked on, and the release this week of the first single from my forthcoming new album, things have been rather hectic just lately. Consequently, this newsletter will be a short one, but you’ll find lots of chat and photographs in the daily tour updates I’ve been posting on my Facebook page, so do have a look at those!

I’m very excited about the new album, and hope you’ll consider pre-ordering it. If you do, you’ll get an immediate free download of my song “The Silver Lining”, and the album will be sent straight out to you the moment it’s released.

If you’re able to make it to one of the shows, it would be great to see you there, and please do help to spread the word if you can.

Update - May 20, 2014

I meant to send out a newsletter at the start of my UK/Ireland tour, but time caught up with me and we’re now into the final week of the UK leg! I’ve listed the remaining dates at right, anyway, along with the rest of my gigging schedule for the summer.

I had a lovely five-week tour in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany in March – click here to see a whole slew of photographs from my travels. That tour finished up just in time for me to get home for my kids’ Easter holidays, which lasted two and a half weeks and were just the tonic I needed – lots of walks with the dog, sitting out in the garden, and a few fun adventures as well: notably taking my daughter to see an absolutely brilliant production of Fiddler on the Roof at Hall for Cornwall, with Paul Michael Glaser (who played Perchik in the classic 1971 film version of the musical, although of course he’s better known as Starsky from Starsky & Hutch) as Tevye.

All too soon the holidays were over and it was time to get back on the road at the end of April. It’s been a really fun tour, chiefly because I’ve been trying out lots of new material from my forthcoming fourth solo album, Walking Into White, which I recorded in January and February in Cornwall, New York (!!) with co-producers Jeremy Backofen (Frightened Rabbit, Felice Brothers, Simone Felice, Andrea Tomasi) and my cousin Adam Pierce (Mice Parade, Tom Brosseau, Múm, Ólöf Arnalds, Gregory and the Hawk). It’s due for release on 2 February 2015 on the Chicago-based Waterbug Records label, and I’m very excited about it – I think it’s a major step forward from my previous recordings.

Keep an eye on the Calendar page for details of all the gigs and on Facebook and Twitter for updates and photos from the road. If you can make it to one of the shows, it would be great to see you there!
