Nashville, TN – Sugar Hill recording artist Sarah Jarosz began her third year at the New England Conservatory this month where she is pursuing a degree in contemporary improvisation. Unlike most students her age, Sarah spent her summer vacation touring in promotion of her current release Follow Me Down, including two trips abroad, ten festival appearances and her first hard-ticket sale tour. MSN Music calls her “one of the fastest-rising stars in the roots music scene” and Sarah has also graced the covers of Austin Woman and Acoustic Guitar magazines in the last six months. In the upcoming Americana Music Awards (October 13th) Sarah is nominated in their Instrumentalist category – quite an honor considering past winners include Jerry Douglas, Buddy Miller and Sonny Landreth.
Luckily for her fans, Sarah found the time to shoot her first music video before returning to NEC. “Run Away” was filmed between her appearances at the Edmonton Folk Festival (Alberta, Canada) and an appearance on the nationally syndicated radio program eTown with The Civil Wars (airdate October 12th). The video was shot in Joelton, (near Nashville, TN) at the Hachland Hill Vineyard and was directed by Adam Hall.
Though Sarah will be focusing on school during the Fall and Winter months, you can catch her opening for the legendary Richard Thompson at Town Hall in NYC on October 15th and at her hometown Rice Festival in Fischer, TX on November 12th.
