An Imaginary Line From CSN to Sarah Jarosz, Aoife O’Donovan & Sara Watkins

I awoke this morning with a throbbing left foot. I wore the black boots last night and my toes unconsciously tapped throughout the seventy-five minute set and the well deserved encore that was delivered by three talented singers, songwriters, and instrumentalists. On a beautiful summer night in the Spanish Courtyard of the Rosen House, located on the lush grounds of the Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts which is a mere sixty minutes north of Manhattan, I kept my eyes closed for much of time to shut out the visual and allow just the sounds of nature melded with the music to pour over the tip of my head and fill my body and soul. The only distraction to my thoughts and immersion were the whoops and cheers that punctuated the close of each song.

So stoked to say that Sara Watkins, Aoife O’Donovan, and I will be taking the I’m With Her Tour to RockyGrass next summer! And to top it all off, I’ll be teaching songwriting and vocals at the RockyGrass Academy the week preceding the festival! Can’t wait to see all my Colorado pals again!

Sara Watkins, Sarah Jarosz and Aoife O'Donovan 2015 European Tour

All mainstays of the acoustic, folk and roots world, Sara Watkins, Sarah Jarosz and Aoife O’Donovan crossed paths many times throughout their careers. So, it comes as no surprise that – after an impromptu performance at the 2014 Telluride Bluegrass Festival – the pieces fell into place for these three acclaimed musicians to collaborate. Watkins, Jarosz and O’Donovan’s first performance on their 2015 European I’m With Her Tour will be at the Celtic Connections Festival in Scotland on 28 Jan.

Watkins’ enthusiasm for this project comes through as she explained, "I respect Sarah and Aoife’s instrumental and vocal musicianship so much. Writing, arranging, every time we play together we are learning how to be a supportive, explosive, good band. That’s very satisfying."

“One thing I’m really excited about in terms of this particular group of voices is that each individual has a lot more range than people might think and it’s going to be fun experimenting with different dynamic and harmonic possibilities,” O’Donovan said.

Performances on the I’m With Her Tour will be a culmination of all three artists playing together as one band; sets will include a mix of each other’s songs, cover songs and traditional songs.

“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,” Jarosz added.

Watkins, Jarosz and O’Donovan have each begun working on their next solo records after spending the bulk of 2014 on the road. Watkins toured to support her release, Sun Midnight Sun, as well as A Dotted Line, the new Nickel Creek release. Jarosz just completed a year of touring for her latest release Build Me Up From Bones, as well as a short collaborative run with The Milk Carton Kids; and Aoife wrapped up touring for her album Fossils as well as special appearances surrounding The Goat Rodeo Sessions.
