Check out Sarah's review from the Indianapolis Early Music Festival!
"The program had another star with whom the lutenist [Ronn McFarlane] could share the limelight. Vocalist Sarah Pillow, who has parlayed her jazz background outward into various styles... was on hand as guest to offer picturesque interpretations of several songs....she delivered admirably, from John Dowland's "Come Again" through the program's rousing conclusion, a nonsense ballad from medieval England called "Nottamun Town."
An original encore, "Sings in Her Sleep," demonstrated that her voice could sustain a singer-songwriter intimacy...from belting ("John Barleycorn," which ended the first half) to the hard-to-define early-art-song territory (Dowland's "Fortune, My Foe"), she showed herself to be an adaptable artist. Emotional urgency was sometimes linked credibly to a soft-spoken manner, as in the medieval Welsh lament "Ddoi di dai."
