Airs Thursday, August 9 at 8:00 p.m. Few musical communities have proven more nurturing of emerging talent than bluegrass and its acoustic tributaries. In part this is because precocious youth has proved a wise investment, as evidenced by former teenage virtuosos such as Marty Stuart, Alison Krauss and Chris Thile. But mostly this is because the players themselves are drawn together by their innate love of the music, and by a common quest for new ways to play it. In this episode, we listen to Sarah Jarosz playing with violinist Alex Hargreaves and cellist Nathaniel Smith.
