Grammy winner Sarah Jarosz talks songwriting, growing up with music

I’ve been fairly lucky to interview a lot of artists on their upward trajectory. This comes from listening to a diverse mix of music and having several friends that do the same. Music fans are notorious for bragging about their newest obsession and singing their praises until they find another artist to dissect. I’m just as guilty as the next guy.

I also absolutely love remarkable storytellers and songwriters. My newest chanteuse on the aforementioned trajectory, Sarah Jarosz, just played the Princess Theater in Decatur on Sept. 6. She’s an accomplished bluegrass and Americana artist that also happens to be a bit of a prodigy. She is a four-time Grammy award winner and 10-time nominee.
