Concert – Sophie Ramsay & Sarah Smout

Date(s) - 20/05/2018
7:30 pm

Just a marker for Sophie and Sarah’s next gig at the Big Shed. There will be more information here once we know more


Sophie and Sarah met at a Rachel Ries concert at the Green Note in Camden, where Sarah was playing. They got talking about species reintroduction (beavers…), ecology and probably climate change, and almost immediately began dreaming up future musical journeys…. prefect for the Big Shed!!

Here’s a little bit more about each of them:

Sarah Smout

Sarah Smout is a cellist, singer and songwriter from Yorkshire. She has toured the country and world playing with acts like Michael Chapman, Rachel Ries, Gren Bartley and King Creosote. But as a singer and poet in her own right, it was only a matter of time before she began a solo career. 2016 has seen the release of her E.P. ‘Decision to Leave’ – songs with cello which are original, beautifully crafted and hugely touching, exploring themes like home, land, love and climate change.  (

“Stirring cello…that was to be the hallmark of the whole album” – The Living Tradition – Magnificent Creatures (Gren Bartley)
“Startlingly good arrangements” – FRUK Live Review – Wickham Festival

She is now celebrating the release of her new album of old Scots and Gaelic Songs ‘The Seas Between Us’: ‘Atmospheric, elegant and beguiling, hers is an exciting new voice to carry Burns onwards.
