Mark Radcliffe brings you more live music from the CCA in Glasgow for Celtic Connections 2015. Scotland's premier music winter festival celebrates its 22nd year with over 2,000 artists playing from traditional and roots music, world, indie, jazz, folk, soul and Americana. Tonight's line-up includes Americana artists Allison Moorer and Sarah Jarosz, plus gospel group The McCrary Sisters performing live.

Paste's 25 Great Musicians Under 25

At 23, Sarah Jarosz already has three full albums of increasingly experimental folk and bluegrass music under her belt. Displaying a virtuoso mastery of just about anything with strings from a young age, it was clear that she would be a prodigy, taken under the wing of bluegrass luminaries such as Tim O’Brien and Darrell Scott as the herald of a new generation. However, like so many other prodigies, she seems unwilling to limit herself to an old-time genre or even the progressive realm of “newgrass.” Rather, in the mold of Nickel Creek’s Chris Thile, she continues to expand her boundaries on records like 2013’s Build Me Up From Bones, journeying toward some sort of platonic ideal that combines elements of old-time folk music, bluegrass, pop and art rock into a distinctly American whole. It’s hard to imagine what kind of music Jarosz might be producing in 10 years time, but we simply hope we’ll be intellectual enough to appreciate it.

A Note From Sarah

It’s hard to believe that 2014 is coming to a close! I’m excited to wrap up the year recording on Michael Daves’ new Twin Albums Project which will also feature Noam Pikelny, Brittany Haas, and Mike Bub. Be on the lookout for that in the Spring of next year.

The first part of 2015 will be spent writing songs and preparing for my next CD. I’ll be doing some solo shows on my own and opening for The Punch Brothers in London, as well as a handful of performances with some special guests. In addition to all that, I’m embarking on the newly announced I’m With Her Tour featuring myself, Sara Watkins, and Aoife O’Donovan. I’m so thrilled to make music with these two ladies in the coming year! I’ll be doing a lot of teaching next summer, starting with Yo-Yo Ma’s Silk Road Project Global Musician Workshop in June, followed by the RockyGrass Academy and Festival in July. Can’t wait to return to some of my favorite places and discover some new ones along the way.

Thank you so much for supporting my music throughout the year. I wish you and your family and friends all the best during the holiday season.

Sitch Session: Sarah Jarosz & Aoife O'Donovan perform "Some Tyrant"

Here’s a recipe for an incredible field recording: pick an idyllic shaded meadow near Aspen Grove, Colorado, set up a few mics among the wildflowers and invite two of the world’s best bluegrass troubadours to join the birds and the buzzing bugs of a mountain forest in song.
