Sarah Neufeld is an exploratory violinist and composer from Montreal, Canada. Best known as a member of Arcade Fire and contemporary ensemble Bell Orchestre, she has recently been making waves via her open-minded collaboration with saxophonist Colin Stetson and two solo albums of spellbinding, widescreen music - 2013's Hero Brother (Constellation) and new breathtaking release The Ridge (Paper Bag Records).
She will be touring Europe this Autumn as a duo with percussionist Stefan Schneider.
