Born in Madrid, raised in Chicago and now based in Cornwall, Sarah id has spent the past seven years touring virtually nonstop on both sides of the Atlantic.

SHe is taking a 12-month break from the road in 2017 to focus her energies on writing and recording a fifth solo album, as well as penning a sequel to The Irish DADGAD Guitar Book.

“I’m also very excited about the next album – I don’t want say too much just yet, cos I’m afraid I’ll jinx it if I do, but if all goes according to plan I’ll have a major piece of news about that very soon.

“And after spending a huge chunk of the past seven years on the road I do feel I’ve earned a bit of a break.

“I’ll still do local gigs, and I’ll also do festivals that only take me away from home for a couple of days at a time – there are a number of festivals that I haven’t been able to get to because I’m always away on tour in other countries when they’re happening, so it’ll be great to be actually available for those.”

She is at Woodend on Thursday November 24 at 7.30pm. It will be her second visit to the venue.
