Set List

  • "Come Around"
  • "Floating in the Balance"

Sarah Jarosz may only be 20 years old, but this Americana bluegrass darling has been shaking up the stage for a few years now. Since the release of her debut album, the multi-instrumentalist and songwriter has earned three Austin Music Awards and nominations for a Grammy and Americana Music Award, all while attending Boston's New England Conservatory for contemporary improvisation. Though the southern talent has a lot on her plate, she drives through it all with mandolin, clawhammer banjo and guitars in hand, not to mention incredible poise.

In this edition of "World Cafe: Next," hear two tracks from Jarosz's second album, Follow Me Down, which hits stores Tuesday, May 17.
