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— Sarah 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 Louisiana-based artists like Michael Doucet, Leyla McCalla, The New Orleans Moonshiners and many tours abroad with French jazz ensembles. And she’s looking forward to her 7th solo release, coming Spring 2023, funded in part by the Threadhead Cultural Foundation of New Orleans.
"Quintana is a great addition to New Orleans expression. Her music is refreshing as rainfall."
