Sara Tindley Obituary, Death – When I found out that the lovely Sara Tindley had passed away on Sunday, it caused my heart to break into a million pieces. If things had turned out differently, we would have been playing a performance together a few of weeks ago, and we would have been sipping afternoon drinks at the Cygnet folky over the weekend. If only things could have been different.
I feel the deepest regret that we were not able to share one more performance on stage together. The approximately five weeks that we spent traveling across the outback of Queensland in 2019, singing, laughing, and drinking every day 24/7 was without a doubt without a doubt the best time in my life without a shadow of a doubt without a shadow of a doubt without a shadow of a doubt without a shadow of a doubt without a shadow of a doubt without a shadow. Even though I don’t have a huge number of close female friends, Sara was the kind of person who made it easy to enjoy being in her company. This was especially true when we were together.
This person possesses the qualities of being so grounded and educated, as well as having such an astounding and illuminating outlook on life, even in the most challenging of circumstances, all while retaining a wicked sense of humor. After the trip was ended, Graham and Ashley offered the women in our group a day to ourselves during which we plied ourselves with copious amounts of seafood, imbibed copious amounts of wine, and engaged in profound philosophical discussions about the significance of life. My recollection of that time is one of the most pleasurable I have. Because she has been on our minds the entire time we’ve been on tour in Australia, and because this is our second time performing at the Cygnet festival,
it was an easy decision for us to make to play Sara and Ash’s amazing song “Allamanda” as the closing act of the festival. As soon as we exited the stage, we were informed that she had left earlier that day. This news came as a surprise to us. Sara, for the rest of my life, I will remember you with great brilliance. Here is a little video of G and I playing “Allamanda,” as well as some photos from our recent travels.
