Who s Sarah Jarosz?

Who s Sarah Jarosz? The bluegrass and country music world knows her as a bluegrass multi-instrumentalist, singer and songwriter whose first CD, Song Up in Her Head, was released by Sugar Hill Records on June 16, 2009. She was nominated for a Grammy Award in the category of Best Country Instrumental Performance for the track "Mansinneedof" from that album.

Jarosz was born in Austin, Texas in 1991, but was raised in Wimberley, Texas. She picked up the mandolin at age 10 and has been called "a songwriter of uncommon wisdom" by the Austin Chronicle. She also plays clawhammer banjo and guitar and wrote all but two of the thirteen tracks on her album. Jarosz began attending the New England Conservatory of Music in the fall of 2009.


Sarah Jarosz has been interviewed by NPR, where she discussed her life, music, and influences. In 2009. Jarosz was interviewed by Rolling Stone magazine, who conveyed the interviewer's opinion that Jarosz' debut was "impressive," and compared her to Gillian Welch, saying that Jarosz could easily be mistaken for "Welch's long lost daughter." Continuing, it goes on to refer to her as a contemporary-bluegrass prodigy with a high opinion of her performance on claw-hammer banjo alongside "dobro king Jerry Douglas," and was won over by two cover songs: Tom Waits' "Come On Up to the House" and The Decemberists' murder ballad "Shankill Butchers," which the interviewer felt was better than the original.
