Celebrated cellist Sarah Smout hails from Yorkshire, and has toured internationally with acts
including Michael Chapman, Bridget St. John, The Mediaeval Baebes, Rachel Ries, King Creosote,
Rosie Doonan, Jess Morgan, and Gren Bartley. Her session work has also appeared on dozens of
critically acclaimed albums in the folk, acoustic, and singer-songwriter scenes.
As a singer and poet in her own right, it was only a matter of time before she began a solo career.
Her songs are original, beautifully crafted and touching, spinning poetry driven lyrics inspired by landscape and sea, and exploring themes like home, land, love and climate change.
Her song ‘Arctic Ground’ was used by Greenpeace for a Save the Arctic campaign video, which depicts the tremendous efforts of protestors and native tribes against oil drilling.
In 2019 Sarah appeared at Primavera Sound (Barcelona), Glastonbury, Green Man, Shambala, Larmer Tree, Costa del Folk and many more.
Sarah is currently working on her solo show, Eyjar, about a musical journey to Iceland by boat, and is collaborating with Yorkshire Wildlife Trust on her project Wild Music, creating music videos showcasing some of Yorkshire’s most fragile environments.
