Americana musician Sarah Jarosz returns to Wintergrass 2013 performing as a trio with fiddler Alex Hargreaves and cellist Nathaniel Smith. Sarah sings her own songs and arrangements of songs from a variety of genres including traditional folk songs and contemporary rock and pop songs. The instrumental side of the trio features Sarahs’ mandolin, octave mandolin, clawhammer banjo and guitar as well as Alex and Nathaniel.
In the two years since Jarosz’s first album “Song Up in Your Head” came out, the wider world has discovered what plenty of old-time and bluegrass luminaries and festival-going fans already knew—that she is a formidable talent. There have been GRAMMY and Americana Music Award nominations, a trio of Austin Music Awards, invitations to perform on “Austin City Limits” and “A Prairie Home Companion” and at Bonnaroo, Newport and Telluride. Sarah has been included on The Transatlantic Series and here is a clip from her appearance.
