Album Notes
Sorcha’s third and newest record, Laughing and Lamenting, is a half solo/half duo powerful stripped down collection that celebrates the paradox of simultaneous loss and growth, a concept that has been a reality for her since age nine when she lost her mother. This theme weaves through the album in stories of farming, homelessness, deception, seaside redemption, and new parenthood. Sorcha is joined on the record by frequent collaborator Pete Morse, electric and pedal steel guitarist and audio engineer, and Patia Maule on piano for the final track, recorded live at Bowdoin College by Chris Watkinson Sounds.

Freelance writer Aimsel Pointi (Portland Press Herald, GO Section) has this to say...
"Laughing and Lamenting," released on Tuesday, is the third album from Sorcha, and she and some of her closest musical friends are marking the occasion with a Saturday-night show at Space.

The album upends loss and longing. If you are not yet familiar with the voice, guitar and all-around gratification that can be found by listening to Sorcha, now's your chance.

She'll be accompanied on electric and pedal steel guitar by Pete Morse, with Adam Montminy on upright bass and Zak Trojano on drums, along with several other allies. Get an inkling at
