The 2016 River House Restuarant Concert Series in Prescott Park, downtown Portsmouth.
Sarah Jarosz, of Wimberley, Texas, has earned her credibility in the world where contemporary folk, Americana and roots music intersect. Her reputation is built on three fronts – she is a gifted mutli-instrumentalist (mandolin, octave mandolin, guitar, and banjo), an expressive and distinctive vocalist, and an accomplished songwriter.
A frequent guest on A Prairie Home Companion, Sarah has appeared on Austin City Limits, the BBC’s Transatlantic Sessions, Conan and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.
She has been nominated for multiple Grammy awards including two from her latest album, Build Me Up From Bones, as well as several Americana Music Association Awards. Her fourth album for Sugar Hill Records, to be released shortly, was written and recorded during brief breaks from touring last year, a year of exploring new performing and recording collaborations, including work with Sara Watkins and Aoife O’Donovan in their new band I’m With Her.
