After years of crossing paths in their intersecting scenes, Sara Watkins, Sarah Jarosz and Aoife O’Donovan sparked an easy chemistry when they came together for an off-the-cuff performance at the 2014 Telluride Bluegrass Festival. In the years since, the women have formed a special, family-like bond, garnering acclaim for their unique blend of instrumental interplay combined with their indelible harmonies. Collectively, the multi-Grammy Award winners have released seven solo efforts, co-founded two seminal bands (Nickel Creek and Crooked Still) and contributed to critically-acclaimed albums from a host of esteemed artists. Though two of the three bandmates have played SMF in the past (Jarosz in 2010, 2013 and 2017 and O’Donovan in 2010, 2014 and 2017), 2019 marks the Savannah debut of I’m With Her.
“Together their sound is both ethereal and purposeful, a combination of searing musicianship and tender vocals.”
