AMERICANA songstress and multi-instrumentalist Sarah Jarosz, who is nominated for four Grammy Awards in LA next month, put on a sold-out show at Mareel on Sunday night.
The Texan-born Jarosz, flanked by bassist Jeff Picker and guitarist Anthony Da Costa, shared numerous songs from last year’s acclaimed ‘Undercurrent’ album along with cuts from her back catalogue during a beguiling 90-minute set, with support provided by local singer-songwriter Arthur Nicholson.
The 25 year old, who was signed to a major record label whilst still in high school, received a huge ovation after rounding off her set with a melodic rendition of fellow Texan Nanci Griffith’s I Wish It Would Rain.
