The holidays are just around the corner, and Sarah’s debut solo album is on sale at CDBaby for $9 until the end of December! So for folks who are scratching their heads over what to give loved ones, how about their very own bowl of Fiddle Soup? Word on the street is that it goes well with cup of hot chocolate, or possibly some hot buttered rum.
As holiday season rolls around, Sarah is keeping busy knitting lots of Christmas presents for her family, and composing and recording a score (with her longtime friend and collaborator Adam Janowski) for Patrick Elliot’s short film, This Side of the Fence. The romantic dramedy documents the interactions of a landscaper and a coffee barista in small-town USA, capturing a wide range of emotions in a short span of time. Emotional range in music is something Sarah and Adam are quite fond of, so of course Sarah has been behaving like a kid in a candy shop by pulling out every instrument she possesses for the recording effort. (Though her cello playing is somewhat suspect!)
Sarah Wilfong loves popcorn, knitting, Star Trek, and playing the fiddle, but most people stop by because of the last thing on the list. (Though to be fair, Sarah’s a deft hand with microwave popcorn. Let her pop some for you sometime.)
Whether she’s performing, recording, or composing, Sarah’s music is filled with energy that infects those who listen with the urge to tap their toes. Sarah and her fiddle are always up to something interesting, and this is the place to find out exactly what that may be.
