Sarah's most recent release, Blue Heron Suite on Rounder Records made it's public debut in the spring of 2021. Recorded in 2018, the stripped-down recording brings Jarosz’s vocals and raw instrumental talent to the forefront thanks to a commission from the FreshGrass Foundation.

This show, recorded at the University of Kentucky with our affiliate WUKY in 2016, also features performances from Robbie Fulks, Over the Rhine, The Black Lillies, and Steve Forbert. You can see the playlist here and find a radio station in your area where you can listen starting Friday, August 13th.
