One of Canada's best songwriters is performing an intimate seated show at 'Mid Sussex Music Hall'.

'Tara MacLean's gorgeous prose draws you into a story that will break your heart and heal it at once. This rare marvel of a memoir is instantly engaging and fiercely gripping — but also like having coffee with a friend, one who happens to be fascinating, talented, and full of stories about the music industry, life on the road, and what it's like inside the star-making machinery.  Maclean is Canada's musical answer to Glennon Doyle as she shares her extraordinary, harrowing, inspiring experiences while also delivering a generous and compassionate masterclass on courage, passion, and resilience.  Everyone, read this book! Then return to it over and over to remind you of why life, despite its hardship and despair, is beautiful.' — Marissa Stapley, New York Times bestselling author of Lucky

  "This is the most incredible and moving memoir. Tara has lived so many lives in just one life and this book is inspiring, painfully honest, so visual, funny and heartbreaking. I couldn't put it down. I feel like I'm still in Tara's world long after reading and want to be back there with her where she can turn survival into beauty and write such an honest story with such warmth, grace and resilience." -- Dido 

 "Tara's Song of the Sparrow is an honest insight into her life and how her creative process has allowed her to not only survive, but soar!" -- Bryan Adams

 "Wise and heart breaking. Tara MacLean writes with tender fierceness about triumphs, horrors, love and upheavals through the lens of an awakened heart. Her alchemical prose elevates the personal to the universal in a way that left me both sobbing and laughing in turn. This book is medicine. Song of the Sparrow is what the world needs now -- a map back to the home of the heart. If it were up to me, these pages would be dropped from the skies so everyone could read it."  -- Lisa Ray

Singer songwriter Tara MacLean has had an extraordinary music career. From being discovered singing on a BC ferry to touring with Dido, Tom Cochrane and Lilith Fair, her solo albums and those with the band Shaye have touched legions of fans. But she hasn't, until now, disclosed the details of how the power of song saved her from a childhood filled with danger.

From her earliest days in the backwoods of PEI, Tara was surrounded by nature, by the songs of her musician father and by the love of her actor mother. But love was not enough to feed their growing family, nor were the at first Wiccan, then evangelical Christian teachings her parents followed. Poverty and uncertainty were constant companions as were the dangers that began to enter their world. Predators can come in many forms from even the most trusted circles, and Tara soon learned that a young girl is never safe. It was only through Tara's inner strength and the sanctuary she found in singing and songwriting that she created a refuge and a future for herself.

Song of the Sparrow is a daring, heartbreaking and provocative memoir of a life filled with music, told with the same raw, open and elegant poetry that Tara's fans have come to expect.  From her early days in PEI through her teenage years in BC to her meteoric rise in music, Song of the Sparrow reveals Tara's remarkable strength and shows that a song and a wide open heart are the best weapons for fighting monsters.
