Sarah Yeo

July 10 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm


Sarah’s first taste of performing was to compete in a Talent competition whilst on holiday at Pontins in Brixham Devon which Sarah Realized is where she felt most comfortable –  being upon the stage. Many more contests followed as a double act with her sister, the duo picked up several prestigious trophies along the way. The sisters sang songs by John Denver, Eagles, the Beatles which showed the harmonies they were both popular for. Late teens saw Sarah going Solo and continuing her winning streak took the top prize in Pontins, Stairway to the Stars, Resorts & People Newspaper Competitions.  By her twenties Sarah was working professionally in Clubs and Bars etc singing popular covers. Alongside these regular gigs she was being filmed for several of the TV talent shows at the time, including Pop Idol, where the production crew filmed Sarah at her day job in the Barber Shop Exeter and at the Excel Centre London.

A finalist in the 2019 and 2020 International Blues and Roots Songwriting CompetitionSarah has always had her roots in Country and Folk, Americana genres. Her love of Country Folk has always been strong and has served as a life long constant, early on admiring the music of Eagles, Garth Brooks, Martina Mcbride, Gretchen Peters, Joni Mitchell to name a few. Her love of music itself was evident since she was a baby, so she is told, ‘singing’ away to the TV and radio and Harmonizing from the high chair!

Going to gigs and Festivals is Sarah’s big love in life and over the years has been to hundreds of concerts soaking up every note of many acts like Amos Lee, Ashley Mcbryde, Josh Groban, Glen Hansard, Lucas Nelson, Inglorious, Toto, the Shires… and is a keen supporter of local independent music like (before they were famous) Wildwood Kin, Jacob and Drinkwater, the Little Unsaid, and especially Show of Hands who she has supported for many years alongside her equally music loving mum. Glastonbury Festival is one of Sarah’s Favorite places in the world and going to the festival is among one of the greatest Musical experiences she can have, and playing there one day is one of the top goals Sarah Yeo is striving for.

Support is from Gracenotes who are a group of four friends all of whom sing in larger choirs around the area but who were drawn together by the opportunity to sing “a Capella”. The quartet are Neil (tenor), Philippa (soprano), Simon (tenor) and Guy (bass) and are based in Banbury, Buckingham, and Winslow. Their repertoire is based on unique musical arrangements by Simon of folk music and contemporary songs, as well as some more traditional Irish and Scottish ballads.
