Pianist’s grand plan

A LOCAL pianist is hoping a new album will be the key to her achieving chart success.
Sarah Kershaw, 30, who grew up in Castle Donington and Shepshed, has been playing piano since the age of six, and studied the instrument at Birmingham Conservatoire.
Four years ago Sarah auditioned successfully to become part of long-running act The Irrepressibles, a ten-piece pop performance orchestra led by singer-songwriter Jamie McDermott, and this week the group released their debut album Mirror Mirror on V2 Records.
Sarah said: “The Irrepressibles are very theatrical, it’s all about making a spectacle, putting on a big show.
“The album’s good, we’re really pleased with what we were able to do – although we’re already thinking about the next album.”
