My first year at Belmont University was a huge success, and I have certainly found my new home (not too far away from home) in Nashville, TN. This year I will be continuing my studies in the songwriting program through the Mike Curb College of Entertainment and Music Business at Belmont and the honors program there. Starting this fall, I am blessed with the opportunity of singing with the Belmont University Chamber Singers, a small a capella group of about twenty singers!
I have just found out that I get the opportunity to be an opening act for Nashville's Shakespeare in the Park festival in August, and I am headed to Pine Mountain, KY for the first time to teach and play at a dulcimer festival there. In October, luck of the draw has it that Maureen Sellers' festival, the Dulcimer Chatauqua on the Wabash falls over my fall break, so I get to finally enjoy the full festival.
Hope to see you all soon.
Sarah Elizabeth's latest CD's
Beyond the Limits
Sarah has blazed new dulcimer territory with her rendition of Malaguena, pointing a new direction for future explorations. She speaks with a powerful and evocative voice with her originals like Hide and Seek. It is sung with convincing conviction. Mature statements from one so young.

We're All in This Together
Sarah is also finding her own unique voice - both figuratively and literally, as this CD includes a number of vocals by Sarah. These include the title cut, as well as Red Rocking Chair, and an astounding acapella vocal arrangement of End of the World. Move over Allison Kraus!
This CD also showcases the instrumental talents we have come to expect from Sarah, which continue to grow and evolve as she continues her musical journey. That development is being fostered by a host of musical mentors, including folks like Ken Bloom and Janita Baker, and Sarah has soaked up what they have to offer, and has turned it into something that is uniquely hers.
