Sarah Jarosz At Grand Ole Opry Country Music Show - Nashville
Sarah Jarosz began mastering music at age 10 with the mandolin. Since then, she learned to play so many instruments that she could be her own one-woman string band that is if she could play them all at once. Mature beyond her years, the Texas-native who was raised just outside of Austin earned admirers from Austin City Limits’ Terry Lickona at a young age.
Her debut album, Song Up In Her Head, was released under Sugar Hill Records at the tail-end of her senior year of high school. The album received great praise for the new, young artist and rocketed to No. 1 on the Top Bluegrass Albums Chart. That fall, she enrolled in Boston’s prestigious New England Conservatory of Music, received a Grammy nomination, and appeared on Austin City Limits and A Prairie Home Companion.
In 2011, she released her second studio album, Follow Me Down, before setting off on a whirlwind tour throughout the United States, Canada, and two trips to Europe to participate in the Transatlantic Sessions, a folk collaboration of top musicians. The album peaked at No. 2 on the Top Bluegrass Albums Chart.
Despite reaching several of her goals already, the young artist is focused on school at NEC and plans her tours for holiday breaks and weekends.
