Biography

Sarah first came to people's attention in the folk clubs of South Yorkshire in the mid 1990's playing a mixture of covers and her own songs. She dropped the covers, moved to Birmingham and formed a duo with Lorna Bryant which quickly became one of the Midland's premier acts. They released a CD entitled Desire which featured twelve of Sarah's songs in June 1998 to much critical acclaim. Ric Sanders of Fairport Convention heard it and liked the music so much that he turned up at one of their gigs and played fiddle with them!

In 2001 Sarah released Freedom with her band TALA. First Person Plural followed in 2005 and Let Days Speak in 2012. Her songwriting and guitar work often attract comment as you'll see below.

Sarah is available as a solo artist or with her long standing musical partner Duncan Gibbs who has played on all of her albums.
