Photos from Japan

Beginning my long journey back to New York now. What an unbelievable time I'm With Her had here in Japan. From start to finish, we were treated with warmth and kindness and were able to sample some of the greatest food and coffee (and sake!) around. So thankful to our new friends here for making us feel right at home. Can't wait to come back!

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.

Just Announced: RockyGrass

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.

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.

Well folks, it is with great excitement that I get to announce that I'll be opening a handful of dates for Nickel Creek this summer!

Needless to say, I couldn't be more thrilled for these shows! Alex and Nat will be with me for all of these dates. Below are the venues that have been announced. - Sarah
