The singer-songwriter's new album The St Buryan Sessions is due for release on October 15 coinciding with the start of her tour which sees her performing all round the UK.

Born out of the pandemic, The St Buryan Sessions will be the sixth solo album by award-winning multi-instrumentalist and is her most powerful and emotive offering yet.

Sarah said: “ I can’t wait to get back out on the road again. Obviously I’m nervous about covid, but I desperately miss performing to live audiences.

"The few gigs that I’ve managed to do this summer have been so, so lovely and every time I do a gig, it just brings home how much I’ve missed it.”

The St Buryan Sessions had its genesis in the spring of 2020, when Sarah’s gigs and tours were cancelled due to the pandemic.

She said: "My style is eclectic and I struggle with the classification. I play acoustic guitars, piano and drums, Some is folk, some is poppy.

"I visited the east of England a long time ago, it's been a while since I've been to this part of the world. I did a couple of good gigs in Norwich."

Thanks to a successful crowd funding campaign, she was able to finance a live solo recording, sans audience, in the lovely medieval church of St Buryan, not far from her home in rural West Cornwall.

The Wolf Folk Club Cabaret, November 13 at Harpley Village Hall, Nethergate Street. Telephone 07470 194200.
