Sarah Jarosz

Airs Thursday, Thursday, November 21 at 8 p.m. At the turn of the 20th century when the mandolin became popular in America, a man named Orville Gibson changed its shape and marketability. What had primarily been a fad instrument would soon fall into the hands of players that would forever alter its musical direction. This edition of the Savannah Music Festival Live is the second of two programs featuring a concert from our 2010 festival that included mandolin virtuosos Mike Marshall, Chris Thile and Caterina Lichtenberg, with special guest Sarah Jarosz.

Savannah Music Festival: Sarah Jarosz

Aug 9, 2012

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.
