OK, all you folkies in Portland- listen good. If you want a new bluegrass singer to love, look no further. Sarah Jarosz is “Gillian Welch‘s long-lost daughter,” according to Rolling Stone. Not sure yet? Download and listen to this- “Annabelle Lee,” a haunting bluegrass ballad that features Jarosz’s lovely voice and some serious fiddling.
What I like about Sarah Jarosz is that she brings folk and bluegrass into modern times, much like Gillian Welch did (does). Her songs are far from a simple country singer’s- they have elements of mystery and darkness mixed in.

If you liked what you heard, you can see Sarah Jarosz on Monday, June 13 at Mississippi Studios. The show is $15 and also features David Jacobs-Strain. Sarah Jarosz is worth a look-see! Sarah’s album Follow Me Down can be purchased here. And yes, “Annabelle Lee” is on it.
