Presented by the Olin Concert Series

Portland, Maine based singer/songwriter, Sara Hallie Richardson, performs and writes music in the folk, indie, and electronic idiom. With influences such as Joni Mitchell, Kate Bush, and Bjork, Richardson’s songs are known for dense vocal harmonies and soaring melodies as well as combining synthetic and acoustic orchestral sounds. Sara has joined many other performers, including the Portland Symphony Orchestra and the Fogcutters, one of the state’s most popular Big Bands and Micromasses (who performed at Bates in September). Sara is known in the Southern Maine music community for her kindness, compassion and warmth; she is equally recognized for her musical ability, powerful vocal range and clever song writing. You can hear her most recent single, Carry On, by clicking the link above. With Carry On, Sara has accomplished what so many aspiring writers hope to achieve: a truly beautiful pop song in 5/8 time.
