Other great recordings by Sarah Pirtle:
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 childrens music in 2007.
As a twelve-year old Sarah taught herself to play guitar using Pete Seeger's Folksingers 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.
Sarahs 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 1970s 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.
