Sarah Jarosz Performs at The Ark, July 7

. June 29, 2016.

The soulful voice and wistful melodies of Sarah Jarosz will be charming The Ark’s theater on July 7. Jarosz is touring in support of her newest album, Undercurrent, an entrancing blend of ruminative rock ambiance, folk balladry, and a twanged Americana rust that sways and flutters.

A gifted multi-instrumentalist, Jarosz not only sings, but plays mandolin, guitar and banjo. The Austin TX-raised Jarosz was nominated for a Grammy before she was 20, and graduated from the New England Conservatory of Music in 2013 (majoring in improvisation). You’ve likely heard her voice on Michigan Radio, via A Prairie Home Companion.  

Undercurrent’s 11 songs are some of her most personal to date. Jarosz’ latest compositions are time-stoppers, breath-takers, day-dreamers and heart-swooners. “If you look up the definition (of Undercurrent),” Jarosz said, “…it’s ‘an underlying feeling or influence’ or ‘a flow of water moving below the surface.’ To me, that really encompasses the feeling behind this record.”

NPR was recently touting the powerfully evocative “House of Mercy.” And while you’re here, you should check out her performance in the latest Attic Sessions….

Sarah Jarosz performs next Thursday, July 7 at The Ark with The Brother Brothers
