Sarah Fisher is a multi-instrumental musician with a disability. In a night showcasing her music, she will be joined alongside friends and special guests combining music, disability and humour.

Sarah has cerebral palsy and whilst studying for her music degree she developed an aggressive involuntary movement in her arm. Playing the piano and percussion has helped to control it. In fact, when she plays you wouldn’t even be aware of her condition.

She gained a first class degree in Community Music here at Sage Gateshead and has gone on to inspire young people with her infectious love for music and unique teaching style. She is so passionate about music and how her disability has shaped her as a musician that she now talks about it at conferences up and down the country.

Sarah is also incredibly funny. Her humour, combined with her musical talent has led to Sarah landing this, her own gig. She has been in residence here for the last few months working on a new showcase for some brand new material she has written.
