Sarah Jarosz’s first-ever UK tour & Radiohead cover


Sarah Jarosz’s first-ever United Kingdom tour supporting her new album, Follow Me Down, begins in just over two weeks. “I had the opportunity to go to the UK for the first time this past March. Jerry Douglas invited me to be a part of the Transatlantic Sessions taping which will air on the BBC in November. It was a total blast,” Sarah relates, “and I’m so incredibly excited to get back over there to tour! The history of the whole area is so rich and I feel like that really affects the music.”

Sarah will be performing songs from her new album and from her debut Song Up In Her Head. She will be joined by band mates Alex Hargreaves (fiddle) and Nathaniel Smith (cello). Sarah adds banjo, mandolin, octave mandolin and guitar to the mix, switching deftly between instruments. (Note: Nathaniel Smith will not be appearing in Glasgow due to previous commitments.)

While Sarah has been a regular on the bluegrass and acoustic music festival scene in the US, this summer marks her first extensive tour which started days after the completion of her sophomore year at New England Conservatory, and just as Follow Me Down came out. Despite being a relative newcomer, Sarah has been greeted by sold-out crowds at many of her dates. She has garnered the favour of the press, and is climbing the radio charts with her first single “Come Around”.

Take a listen to her cover of Radiohead’s “The Tourist” here:
