Aoife O'Donovan, AMA Honors & Awards, ABC's Nashville, and more!

Hello folks!

It’s hard to believe this whirlwind summer is already drawing to a close. I had a blast performing at some incredible festivals including Bonnaroo, ROMP, Red Wing Roots, the 50th annual Cambridge Folk Fest, Rocky Mountain Folks Fest, Philly Folk Fest, and Four Corners Folk Fest. Alex, Nat, and I had an amazing three week tour across Ireland, Scotland, England, and Wales at the end of July. In addition to all of that, it was a dream come true to open a handful of dates for Nickel Creek on their reunion tour! There are still a lot of very exciting things in store for the remainder of 2014, including the upcoming collaborative tour with The Milk Carton Kids! Read on to find out more info. Thanks to all the folks who came out to these shows and supported the music. Hope to see you down the road!

Fresh from a collaborative appearance on Austin City Limits, The Milk Carton Kids & Sarah Jarosz will bring their flat-picked folk music to 16 different venues across the Midwest and East Coast. They’ll be using just one microphone, too, a tip of the proverbial cowboy hat to the folkies than came before them. The kids are all right.

In Collaboration: The Milk Carton Kids & Sarah Jarosz featuring acclaimed musicians Alex Hargreaves, Paul Kowert and Nathaniel Smith unite for a limited number of engagements this fall


Grammy-nominated folk artists The Milk Carton Kids & Sarah Jarosz, along with Alex Hargreaves, Paul Kowert and Nathaniel Smith will offer a very special evening of collaborative performance in front of one microphone. Following their meeting at the renowned Telluride Bluegrass Festival in 2013, Sarah Jarosz and The Milk Carton Kids have pursued a collaboration with a depth and identity all its own. Their initial performances (on Austin City Limits and at Lincoln Center’s American Songbook Series) have been widely heralded for the seamless harmony of the three singers, the unassailable virtuosity of the players, and the obvious if uncommon chemistry the young artists have found with one another. This fall, they are presenting it, fully realized for the first time, in a limited tour of some of the country’s finest symphony halls and performing arts theaters. The tour begins on October 17 in Concord, NH and concludes on November 3 in Carmel, IN.
