Since signing her first recording contract at the age of 16, Sarah </span>Jarosz<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> has barely stopped to catch her breath. She has made several recordings and tour throughout North America and Europe. She left her native Texas to pursue a degree at the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston and along the way she developed a very unique musical conception with a trio, all while becoming one of American music's finest young talents with songwriting chops to match her instrumental prowess. Only two month away from her college graduation at the age of 21, Sarah </span>Jarosz<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> returned to the Festival in the spring of 2013 with fiddler Alex </span>Hargreaves<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> and cellist </span>Nathanial<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> Smith. It was her second appearance at the festival and the growth of her trio was nothing short of extraordinary. We'll listen to this concert and a couple of tunes from her first appearance in 2010.</span></div><p> Fri, 25 Jul 2014 01:00:00 +0000 47401 at http://redriverradio.org Savannah Music Festival: Sarah Jarosz Live 2013 Savannah Music Festival: Americana http://redriverradio.org/post/savannah-music-festival-americana-1 <div><strong>Airs Thursday, July 3 at 8 p.m.</strong> In music, the term "Americana" generally refers to a subset of American music that is perhaps best defined as "classic" American music, ranging in style from roots-based bluegrass to alternative country, gospel, blues, zydeco, jazz and other native forms.
