We’re excited to welcome Sarah Jarosz to Band on the Wall – with guest Cat Clyde.

With her captivating voice and richly detailed songwriting, Sarah Jarosz has emerged as one of the most compelling musicians of her generation. A four-time Grammy Award-winner and ten-time nominee at the age of 31, the Texas native started singing as a young girl and became an accomplished multi-instrumentalist by her early teens.

After releasing her full-length debut Song Up in Her Head at 18 years old, she went on to deliver such critically lauded albums as Follow Me Down, Build Me Up From Bones, and Undercurrent, in addition to joining forces with Sara Watkins and Aoife O’Donovan to form the acclaimed folk trio I’m With Her.

Her fifth studio album, World On The Ground, produced by John Leventhal, went on to win the Grammy award for Best Americana Album.

In 2021 Jarosz released the Grammy-nominated Blue Heron Suite, a much-anticipated song cycle, which she composed after being the recipient of the FreshGrass Composition Commission. She continues to tour in support of both releases.

Tour support comes from Cat Clyde. Cat Clyde’s third album Down Rounder is a wonder of deeply felt songwriting, a record that finds the Canadian singer-songwriter marvelling at what’s around her while considering her own place within it all. With ten songs on the album, Down Rounder possesses an intimate and personal feel, transporting the listener to the recording studio as she performs these hair-raising tunes with confidence and passion. It’s a strong step forward as a songwriter and musician, as well as an immensely satisfying record for anyone looking to connect the loose threads between themselves and the outside world.

Age restriction: This is a 10+ show. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.
