Important Update: Due to the popularity of this event, we are relocating our toe-tapping good time from the Granby Public Library to the Community Room at the Granby Senior/Youth Services Center. This offers considerably more space and will allow for comfortable seating of all our guests. 

The Senior/Youth Services building is located at the same address as the Library, 15 North Granby Road, Granby, Connecticut. You'll find the Center toward the back of the municipal complex. Please note there is ample parking throughout the complex. Doors open 30 minutes prior to the performance. 

Added Bonus! Be sure to visit Granby Public Library through the month of February to view Sarah's extensive collection of fiddles in the main display case. Stop by during regular library hours February 1 through 28.

About the artist:

Sarah's musical journey began at the age of four when she started violin lessons using the Suzuki Method. By the age of six she was introduced to fiddle music and began competing in fiddle contests all over New England. Her grandparents suggested having a signature she was known as the girl with the little red hat. Eventually it was her playing that ws being recognized as she won hundred of competitions. 

These contests and festivals instilled Sarah's passion for old-time music as she learned and played along some of the best old-timers. Even her fiddle was given to her by New England fiddler Willie "Uncle Willie" Lapman and carries a history of over 200 years of song. 

The moment her bow touches the strings, Sarah's passion for music is evident. Combingin her influences of Old-Time, Irish, World and Classical music, Sarah takes her audiences on a musical journey form old-time sing-alongs to lively polkas and rousing reels.
