Never miss another 'Sarah McQuaid' show
Wallingford Bunkfest: Sarah McQuaid + The Albion Band + Oysterband
Sarah McQuaid is a gifted and captivating performer whose warm, haunting alto is delicately cradled by her sparkling guitar. She performs Appalachian folk songs, Elizabethan ballads and 1930s jazz numbers interspersed with eloquent story telling. She has released three solo albums -
'When Two Lovers Meet' (1997), 'I Won't Go Home 'Til Morning' (2008) and 'The Plum Tree and the Rose' (2012) - in addition to 'Crow Coyote Buffalo' (2009), released with co-writer Zoë under the band name Mama. 'A great songwriter and traditional singer, and a wonderful guitarist' - Mike Harding, BBC Radio 2.

Alongside Steeleye Span and Fairport Convention, The Albion Band is one of the 'Big Three' of English Folk Rock, fusing traditional British songs and tunes with contemporary instruments and sounds, and all formed by legendary band leader Ashley Hutchings.
2012 saw a complete reboot of The Albion Band, with the torch being passed to a newer generation of English folk talent. As ever, this band brings together some of the finest musicians and singers in the UK folk scene including Ashley's son Blair Dunlop, plus Gavin Davenport, Katriona Gilmore, Tom Wright, Tim Yates and Benjamin Trott.
This new line-up recaptures the spirit of The Albion Band's heyday with a rockier, edgier approach to traditional English folk music. Taking the unique character of classic era Albion Band and fusing it with award winning song writing and a contemporary rock and indie vibe, this is the new sound of 21st century English Folk-Rock.
