Here is some footage of Sarah Jarosz doing a sound check for tonight's show at the College of Charleston Cistern. The show starts at 9pm.
At the age of 18, Sarah Jarosz was on the fast track to fame. With a bestselling debut album and a Grammy nomination under her belt, she was already being called a bluegrass wunderkind thanks to her sweet singing voice, mature songwriting, and mastery of the mandolin, guitar, and banjo. She had been asked to play on Austin City Limits and A Prairie Home Companion, and she made appearances at Bonnaroo, the Newport Arts Festival, and Telluride Bluegrass Festival. But instead of coasting on her early successes, Jarosz opted to put the touring on hold and go to college. Tell that to your nephew who wants to drop out to become a rock star. —Erica Jackson Curran
