Sarah Neufeld (born August 27, 1979) is a Canadian violinist who is known for her work with indie rock band Arcade Fire, with whom she was a former core member and is currently a touring member. She has worked with other artists and released a number of solo works.
Neufeld was a core member of the band on its second and third studio albums, Neon Bible (2007) and The Suburbs (2010), and contributed as an additional musician on the albums Funeral (2004) and Reflektor (2013), and their subsequent tours.
Neufeld is also a member of the post rock band Bell Orchestre, alongside Arcade Fire multi-instrumentalist Richard Reed Parry and former Arcade Fire member Pietro Amato. At age 18, she moved from East Vancouver to Montreal, Quebec, with electronic artist Tim Hecker, where she subsequently joined both bands. She currently lives in Montreal between tours. In 2009, Neufeld joined The Luyas.
Neufeld released her first solo album, Hero Brother, in 2013, and released a collaborative studio album, Never Were the Way She Was, with fellow Arcade Fire collaborator Colin Stetson in 2015. In 2016, Neufeld released her second solo album, The Ridge on Paper Bag records. The album features Arcade Fire drummer Jeremy Gara. The Ridge sees Neufeld incoporate more vocals than her previous record, Hero Brother.
Neufeld and regular collaborator Colin Stetson composed the score to the 2013 film Blue Caprice.
