Sarah Calderwood


Sarah is a multi award-nominated singer and storyteller who unites storytelling with modern and traditional folk. As lead singer of renowned Celtic and Americana bands Sunas and RedCrow, she has toured extensively in Australia and overseas, played at most folk and roots festivals and released four acclaimed albums.

A charismatic solo artist in her own right, Sarah’s vocal style is incredibly varied and distinctive; from soft and intimate, rising to bold and striking; and she plays Irish flute and whistles with a fierce intensity. Sarah received an ARIA nomination for Best World Music Album for her debut release ‘As Night Falls’, and her YouTube videos have been viewed over a million times. She is the second ever Australian musician to be regarded as a Watergirl, after appearing as a member of legendary Scots/Irish band, The Waterboys. Sarah has headlined concerts with the eensland Pops Orchestra and the Australian Girls Choir, and has debuted songs written by Irish song writing master Brendan Graham (You Raise Me Up).

Often praised for her capacity to sound new and old at once, Sarah anchors her music in the space where tradition and innovation intertwine.
