Bluegrass star Sarah Jarosz has been touring since she was 16 years old, so the 2020 quarantine has been an especially unusual year for her. Her new album, World on the Ground, was made in collaboration with producer and musician John Levanthal, and it takes you to her hometown of Wimberley, Texas, where she introduces you to characters and settings both real and imagined.
You might have heard of Jarosz via her band I'm With Her with Sarah Watkins and Aoife O'Donovan. Or from performing with the house band on Chris Thile's former radio show, Live From Here. Today, we'll get familiar with her solo work as she performs songs from her new album, beginning with "Orange and Blue."
You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for. If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
