      We really enjoyed being able to see Sarah from our couch! Her music continues to move us in deep ways. Such a talent!

      This was delightful, Sarah. My first experience and I found it very enjoyable. Wish I could have shared it with someone - Ron was gone. I will want to do this again. Thanks for a lovely hour. (Reception wasn't very good during the first 10 + min.)

      Loved being able to see a show and enjoyed the somewhat relaxed and smaller venue vibe, especially since you don't get up my way often. hope you do it again sometime.

"(Sarah) is a once-in-a-lifetime kind of artist in her delivery, honesty and songwriting." - No Depression

Sarah Siskind continues to be one of today’s most respected and covered songwriters as well as a stand-out independent artist, who Spin Magazine calls “an artist you must hear now”. Armed with a striking vocal style and solid guitar and piano work, Sarah is a regular NPR performer with features on NPR's Tiny Desk Concerts, World Cafe with David Dye, All Songs Considered, Song Of The Day and most recently NPR’s Mountain Stage. She has toured with Bonnie Raitt, Paul Brady, Grammy winner Bon Iver (who also famously covered her "Lovin's For Fools") and The Swell Season and had songs recorded by Alison Krauss (the GRAMMY nominated "Simple Love"), Randy Travis, Madi Diaz and many more.

Born and raised in North Carolina, Sarah built her musical career in Nashville, TN. Her 2009 release “Say it Louder” was crowned ‘Americana Album of the Year’ at the Nashville Music Awards. In 2011, Sarah’s album “Novel” highlighted her as the sole musician, producer and engineer. Bonnie Raitt had this to say about it: "With Novel, Sarah has created another extraordinary collection of some of the most beautiful and unique songs you're likely to hear. She continues to be one of my favorite singers and songwriters. She absolutely knocks me out."

Sarah relocated to the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia in 2012 with her husband where she was inspired to write all the songs on the boutique EP “In the Mountains.” 2012 brought big things, including support dates for Bonnie Raitt and Time Magazine calling her “one of our favorite 5 voices” at SXSW in Austin, TX.

In July 2013, Justin Vernon’s Chigliak Records re-released Sarah’s debut full-length album “Covered” which she recorded at age 22 but could not properly release due to illness. The album is now available worldwide and highlights the guitar work of Bill Frisell.

Siskind’s songs are heavily featured on ABC’s hit TV show Nashville and she recently made her primetime television debut in the music special “Nashville: On the Record”, performing her song “A Life That’s Good” with the show’s cast. Other television shows that have featured Sarah’s songs are MTV’s Teen Mom 2, MTV’s Awkward, ABC’s Pretty Little Liars, Lifetime’s Army Wives and HBO’s The Wire.
