Presents “Sarah McQuaid” on Sunday, October 21. Sarah McQuaid's rich alto voice has been likened to malt whiskey, melted chocolate and "honey poured into wine" (Minor 7th). Born in Spain, raised in Chicago and now living in rural England, this singer-songwriter & guitarist refuses to be pigeonholed, moving easily between traditions and times -- from 16th century lute songs to historic Cuban jazz, from Irish and Appalachian ballads to emotive originals and contemporary pop covers. On stage she seduces audiences with "cheeky banter" as well as stories of life on the road and her childhood in a musical family that included singing legend Gamble Rogers. The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. Admission is $20, $17 for members – with discounts for, seniors, youth, and children. The Community Hall is handicapped accessible. There is no charge for street parking after 6:00 p.m. More information is available at or by calling (508) 540-0320.
