Overview

Three mainstays of the acoustic, folk and roots music world take their individual talents and harmonize together in this one-of-a-kind band. Sara Watkins, Sarah Jarosz and Aoife O’Donovan, each accomplished solo artists in their own right, play sets of each other’s songs, cover songs and traditional songs in this dynamic performance.

“O’Donovan adds the sultry sweetness, Watkins brings the jazz, and Jarosz keeps a steady, heartfelt keel.” – Songlines (UK)

Sara Watkins, a singer-songwriter and fiddler from California, made her debut in 1989 as founding member of the progressive bluegrass group Nickel Creek. In addition to singing and playing fiddle, she is adept at the ukulele, guitar, and played percussion while touring with The Decemberists.

Sarah Jarosz is a multi-Grammy nominated singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who hails from just outside of Austin, TX and makes her home in New York City. Jarosz, who fits comfortably where contemporary folk, Americana and roots music intersect, has long been embraced for the depth and maturity of her songwriting, her pure and nuanced vocals, and her instrumental mastery – switching between octave mandolin, banjo, guitar and mandolin as the songs dictate.

Boston-born Aoife O’Donovan is known for her ethereal vocals and substantive songwriting. After graduating from New England Conservatory, O’Donovan hit the road as the lead singer and principal songwriter/song-finder of Crooked Still, which grew into one of the world’s most acclaimed progressive string groups over the ensuing decade. She has garnered the attention of some of the most eminent names in music and collaborated with the likes of Alison Krauss to Dave Douglas.

“I’m really excited about this trio because we each do our own thing and we each do it differently, so I’m looking forward to discovering all of the unique possibilities that come with combining our individual voices,” – Sarah Jarosz
