These charismatic vocalists and instrumentalists (fiddle, mandolin, guitar) are on the road constantly with their busy individual projects, except for those rare and magical times when they come together as the Americana supergroup I’m With Her, whose debut album, See You Around, was released this February. “The harmonies couldn’t have been purer, or the picking more precise.” — The New York Times

“I’m With Her is no casual jam session or songwriters’ roundtable. Each song in the trio’s generous set was meticulously arranged to make the most of the many ways the musicians could blend. Serene understatement was the concert’s hallmark; at times, the music was so quiet I could hear the club’s floorboards creaking.” — The New York Times

The American roots music tradition thrives in the Music Room of the Rosen House. Sierra Hull has been recognized from age 11 as a virtuoso mandolin-player, gaining respect and admiration from audiences and fellow musicians alike. Now a seasoned touring musician nearing her mid-20s, Hull has honed her vocals and songwriting to match the skill of her playing gaining the attention of greats like Bela Fleck and Alison Krauss.

For this special evening, Sierra Hull will be bringing along a few guests to meet somewhere in the middle between her bluegrass roots and the Grammy-nominated, Weighted Mind.

“She plays the mandolin with a degree of refined elegance and freedom that few have achieved” — Béla Fleck

Enjoy an All-Audience Afterglow following the performance.

Noam Pikelny is one of the world’s greatest banjo talents. Perhaps best known for his work in the forward-thinking bluegrass band Punch Brothers, Pikelny made a name for himself as a solo artist after receiving the inaugural (and prestigious) Steve Martin Prize for Excellence in Banjo & Bluegrass. Now, for the first time in his career, Pikelny is going completely solo leaving the accompaniment behind and letting his own striking baritone voice lead the way.

Caramoor and KMA extend their summer of music into September, co-presenting alto saxophonist Eddie Barbash and his American roots band as a precursor to KMA’s fall exhibition, Sound Actions. A founding member of Jon Batiste Stay Human, the house band for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Eddie has performed with stars in almost every genre – jazz with Wynton Marsalis, classical with Yo-Yo Ma, rock with Lenny Kravitz, and country with Vince Gill. Don’t miss this one-night only, outdoor performance in our Marilyn M. Simpson Garden before the weather turns. Advance tickets recommended.

Join us for an intimate benefit concert in our smallest venue – the 170-seat Music Room of the historic Rosen House to celebrate and support Caramoor’s American Roots Music programs. British folk rock legend Richard Thompson, hailed as one of the top 20 guitarists of all time by Rolling Stone magazine and widely recognized as one of the world’s most critically acclaimed songwriters, returns to Caramoor for a rare solo acoustic performance.

As a not-for-profit cultural organization, Caramoor depends on the generosity of individual contributors to help underwrite the music we offer and this exceptional concert is a benefit to raise funds for our American Roots Music programming featured throughout the year.

By purchasing a ticket for this evening you will provide both vital financial support for Caramoor, and have the pleasure of experiencing a celebrated artist in a unique and personal setting.

We hope you can join us for this memorable evening. A cocktail and dessert reception follows the performance.

No matter the genre, hers is one of the most distinctive voices in American music, conjuring images of wide open spaces and the lonely, dusty roads that connect us all.

Fan favorite John Fullbright returns with an evening featuring the Oklahoma singer/songwriter’s pungent lyrical imagery. Winner of the ASCAP Harold Adamson Lyric Award, the Los Angeles Times said Fullbright writes songs that are “impressively and potently economical, mostly stripped to the emotional essence through poetically concise lyrics and heart-rending musical settings.”

“Mr. Fullbright joins the lineage of terse Southwestern songwriters like Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark, sticking to a few folky chords and reaching for unassailable clarity.”
– Jon Pareles, The New York Times

Join us – together with Sara Watkins, Sarah Jarosz, and Aoife O’Donovan – to support Caramoor’s American Roots Music program.

These 3 talented and charming musicians are on the road constantly with their busy individual projects, except for those exceedingly rare and magical times when they come together as their band I’m With Her. I’m With Her, fresh off several shows with Chris Thile on A Prairie Home Companion, returns to Caramoor for one night to raise funds to support Roots Music programming at Caramoor.

Sara, Sarah, and Aoife each has a special relationship with Caramoor, and this will be a deeply personal – and memorable – evening.

“I’m With Her is no casual jam session or songwriters’ round table. Each song in the trio’s generous set was meticulously arranged to make the most of the many ways the musicians could blend.” – The New York Times

This is a limited and exclusive performance. I’m With Her is not officially touring again until 2018 so your ticket gets you one of only 100 seats to hear a band The New York Times hailed as “an alliance of Americana virtuosos.”

The audience is invited to an Afterglow Reception following the performance to enjoy refreshments and to spend time chatting with Aoife, Sarah, and Sara. And your ticket is a tax deductible donation too (see below).

Thank you for helping keep Roots Music thriving at Caramoor. We hope to see you on December 3 for this extraordinary night of music.
