The music of Sarah Morgan embodies her respect and joy of folk music and her creative approach to arranging. Backing traditional Appalachian melodies and haunting old time tunes with fresh harmonies and a progressive drive, she lends a new feel to seemingly "old" tunes, while accompanying pure and heartfelt vocals with the unpretentious sound of the Appalachian dulcimer. Folk, Americana, and Old-Time roots are brought to the forefront at live shows, where only Sarah and her dulcimer can be found behind the microphone, creating a subtle yet powerful sound that brings the relevant music of the past to today’s audience.
Sarah Morgan started her musical journey when she was 7 years of age and has fallen in love with traditional and folk music over the years. Sarah has performed and taught dulcimer throughout the Southeast. In July 2010 she released her self-published, debut album, Simply Sarah and is currently recording her second album, working with Andy LeGrand of Red Door Studio. At 16, Sarah placed 3rd at the 2010 National Mountain Dulcimer Championships held in Winfield, KS. She has since won multiple titles including Mid-Eastern Region Mountain Dulcimer Champion, Kentucky State, and Southern Region Champion. In 2010, Sarah’s original song "Shepherd of the Hills" received 2nd place at the New Songs Showcase at the Walnut Valley Festival. The same year, she was awarded a concert slot at the Walnut Valley Festival as part of the Acoustic Kids Concert and became the first dulcimer player to be awarded that recognition.
