Sarah Pirtle is an award-winning author and musician who writes and sings for all ages. She received the Magic Penny Award for lifetime achievement in children’s music in 2007.  
As a twelve-year old Sarah taught herself to play guitar using Pete Seeger's “Folksinger’s Guitar Guide” and her goal in life was to be like Pete. She never dreamed that Sing Out! magazine, which she subscribed to as a teenager and read cover to cover, would one day carry songs of hers including “Mahogany Tree” or that her performing would be mentioned in Billboard Magazine.
Sarah’s songs from her seven recordings have a crossover appeal for all ages and have been recorded by Sharon, Lois and Bram, Bonnie Lockhart, Two of a Kind, Velma Frye, Tom Pease and many others. Most recently Common Thread Community Chorus of Toronto included her song, “My Roots Go Down,” on their greatest hits recording.
Sarah is considered a national expert on teaching social skills through the arts. Training in the 1970’s to become a dance therapist, she chose instead to focus upon communicating through music and joined the Living Poem Theater Company where she not only performed but wrote songs for the productions. Today she has returned to her love of dance by leading Sacred Circle Dance and choreographing dances to contemporary and original music.
The heart of her work is connecting with the earth and bonding with the natural world through the expressive arts. In her programs for adults she underscores that we can listen for our own personal connection to the fruitful life-force of the Universe. For fourteen years she has directed Journey Camp held at Woolman Hill in Deerfield which emphasizes that “We aren’t just on the earth. We are part of the earth creating and growing.” She co-founded the Tree of Life School at Red Gate Farm, now in its third year. Each keynote speech, each workshop, each concert, brings together the themes of building our communities, caring about justice, and fervently loving the earth.
