The SARAH QUINTANA band
Sarah Quintana's new project, "The Sarah Quintana Band" features her best efforts to claim her roots as a New Orleans musician. With an all-star lineup— Rex Gregory, Jason Jurzak, Rose Cangelosi, Chris Beros-Hagis and special guests Leyla McCalla, Louis Michot of the Lost Bayou Ramblers and Corey Ledet — Quintana strives to further perpetuate the culture of feel-good music, leaving her mark on our beloved city with new arrangements of New Orleans hits from the 60's, French blues and addictive, upbeat originals. A fierce guitarist with an angelic voice— Quintana weaves the rich influences of cajun, jazz and folk music into her songwriting. Quintana is looking back on a decade of music-- collaborations with artists like Michael Doucet, Leyla McCalla, tours abroad with French jazz-vocalist Marion Rampal and saxophonist Raphael Imbert. And she's looking forward to her 7th solo-release, coming Spring 2023, funded in part by the Threadhead Cultural Foundation of New Orleans.
