Sarah Neufeld


She’s a yoga instructor, violin wunderkind (from age 3), member of Belle Orchestre, collaborates with The Luyas and Snailhouse and least we forget, her main gig is with that fairly well known Montreal band, Arcade Fire. Although she’s done solo violin film commissions, her first solo album is just about to drop. The emotional intensity and relentlessness of her playing is Inspired by raw, old fiddle styles, classical and avant music and pop music’s melodic sensibilities. The violin is Sara’s voice, created from simple notes build into massive walls of sound, sans loop pedal or other artificial enhancements.
