Sarah McInnis
Region: Nova Scotia
Genre: Folk, Singer-Songwriter

A folk singer/songwriter from Peterborough, Ontario, Sarah McInnis is a talented multi-instrumentalist and masterful storyteller. With poetic lyricism, her deeply personal songs lend a new authentic voice to universal themes of human connection. Sarah’s stirring vocals and heart-felt performances reach out to her listeners to transform each stage into an intimate-feeling venue. Her debut EP, Farmer, Coal Miner, produced in 2016 by James McKenty, beautifully illustrates her craft, with an exploration of family ties, home and a sense of place, love, loss, self-awareness, and wonder — all skillfully woven into seven thought-provoking tracks. Sarah has shared the stage with award-winning Canadian musicians Old Man Luedecke, Craig Cardiff, and Mathias Kom (of The Burning Hell) and has worked locally on several independent music projects in Peterborough, as well as in Wolfville, Nova Scotia, where she currently resides. Her upcoming 2018 projects include plans to record a duet album with bandmate, songwriter and dobro player, Jesse Carlson. Sarah’s unique approach to writing, and warm, clear vocals, reminiscent of a time gone by, leave audiences with a lasting impression of her honesty and skillful artistry, long after her final note is sung.
