Strong roots

Every once and a while a musician seemingly pops into the public’s view and immediately captures their hearts. Sarah Jarosz is that sort of musician. Looking younger than her 22 years, playing the mandolin as if she’s been doing it even longer, Jarosz is like everyone’s daughter or sister, sweet, but with a drove of talent to boot. Playing, singing and writing music as well as she does, as she has on her third album, Build Me Up From Bones, gets one’s name in Rolling Stone Magazine. It also gets one nominated for an Americana Music Association Award for New/Emerging Artist of the Year in 2010, Instrumentalist of the Year in 2011, oh, and Song of the Year in 2012, and nominated for two Grammys for Best Folk Album and Best American Roots Song. Hear her mix of folk, Americana and roots sounds at University of Illinois Springfield Studio Theatre on Sunday, Sept. 29. You know if Alison Krauss and Amos Lee will sit down and play with her, you should sit down with her and take a listen, too.
