Welcome to the official website of world class pedal steel guitarist and vocalist Sarah Jory.
Hello EveryoneI thought it was about time I wrote a few words here on the web site , to not only say hello but to also bring you all up to date with the SJ situation right now. First of all a big thank you to Kurt for a doing a great job running the new site now , and I know you all love it by the feed back we are getting about it. And also I would like to say a huge thank you for all the help and support you have given me during my illness this year. For those of you who dont know , the reason I have been quiet on the gigging front is because at the end of March this year , I was struck down with a Glandullar Virus and Blood poisoning , which not only just about shut down my entire immune system but also my liver and kidney function , and left over 60 % of my blood infected too…….I have never felt so ill in my life , and it completely knocked me off my feet , and although I am not entirely out of the woods yet and still having frequent hospital visits etc , this last 3 weeks has seen me turn a huge corner , and I finally feel that there is light at the end of this very long tunnel . Its been an extremely tough time both physically and mentally , but my family , friends and my music work mates have been amazing and so supportive , especially when I have been to ill or too weak to just get out of bed let alone get to and play a gig , but your words of comfort and encouragement have meant the world to me , and I know that the new year 2015 will see me back out there doing what I love to do and what I feel I do best , making music. And if the last 6 months have really emphasized anything to me , its that you truly dont know whats waiting for you around that next corner , so you really should try if you can , to make every single second count….. Life is way to precious and way too short…………………………………………!!!!! Lots of Love Sarah xxxxxxxxxxx
