We're excited to share the music of Stuart alumna Lizzie Quinlan, a.k.a. Lizzie No (a.k.a. daughter of Spanish Teacher Cathy Quinlan). Lizzie is a harpist, singer and songwriter who, "combines poetic lyricism and smoky, rough-around-the edges vocals for a modern brand of muscular Americana." Lizzie recently released her debut album Hard Won, of which one reviewer writes, "It is very hard to believe that this is a debut album. The lyrics have depth and power beyond what one would expect of an artist so young ... This is a well-crafted album, interesting musically as well as lyrically ... I cannot recommend Hard Won highly enough." Lizzie recently spoke to NPR's Weekend Edition about finding her place in the tradition of black people playing folk music. Listen to the interview. Hard Won is available where music is sold.
Stuart is proud to have more than 1,400 alumnae, each of whom is a testament to the school’s educational mission and Sacred Heart philosophy. Stuart alumnae take dynamic roles in their communities at large, professionally, socially and personally.
Alumnae Day 2017 is just two months away!
