    Nice, comprehensive interview Brad. She's one of my favorites...and beyond her immense talent, her wonderful sense of humility and respect for the music is equally impressive.

    Thanks for this. Met Sarah over here in the UK after a show and she couldn't have been a more humble, sweet presence. It's great to live in a world where people create such beautiful music.

    She's such a treat. I saw her live when she was about 13, playing a set for the Austin Friends of Traditional Music with Erik Hokkanen. They were amazing together and I've enjoyed seeing/hearing her progress since then.

    She was on the roster the first year I went to Grey Fox and was one of the highlights of that fantastic experience. A great musician. Thanks for this!

    Thanks folks. Here is an I'm With Her out-take that I took at Sarah's 'Celebrate Brooklyn' concert. I like this one, even though nobody was looking my way! The encore was accompanied by a hand-clap rhythm section.

    Any other Cafe regulars make the show? Sadly, thunder and lightning swept in just as the Punch Brothers began their set. (outdoors and no roof over the seats) Argh.

    the wife and I have saw her in concert twice-once a few years ago at Bristol Rhythm & Roots, she was on stage by herself-this was our first introduction of her music-it was great. She played mandolin, some banjo, and I think she had a J200 Gibson guitar she used for a few songs-she killed it.

    A year or so later, we saw her in a small venue in North Carolina, can't remember the name now, something of an older small auditorium.

    She is an amazing artist, so versatile.

    Great story btw!

    Wimberley was her home base but her mama took her around to other jams too. She was unfailingly polite and never, never precocious (in the negative sense which word is often used). Everybody knew she was way better than the rest of us and we encouraged her to let loose.

    As a frequent participant in those early Wimberley jams when Sarah and I were both learning to play mandolin (and Mike Bond was encouraging us both), and knowing Sarah's parents, I can say without reservation that she is one of those rare talents with a truly sweet and pure heart, and it comes out in her music in such a delightful and refreshing way. I look forward to watching what she will accomplish with her music and what her music can accomplish in this troubled world. Love what you're doing Sarah, Louise and I send all our love.

    I can wholeheartedly agree with this statement. My first view of Sarah was on Transatlantic V sessions. She looks so much younger than her young years : ) But what talent and reverence for the music.

    I'm so happy to see that Sarah's new project, I'm With Her, got a rave from the NYTimes's Jon Pareles the other day.

    Review: I’m With Her, Three Americana Virtuosos

    I ran into Sarah tonight and asked her how the new/old Nugget mandolin was coming along. She's having it regretted and a strap button installed this week. Now THAT's the kind of detail you won't find in the Times.

    Reviving this thread, for breaking news. It's great to see the hopes and plans that Sarah expressed in our interview two Summers ago, coming to fruition. Here's a video from I'm With Her, now the 'real band' that she promised us - with their first release of an original song by the group.

    her group with grisman and hargreaves is great. i bet the new one will be as well. there is a your tube video of her singing and playing ireland's green shore on banjo at the bluebird cafe. solo. a great rendition that i think she learned from tim o'brien. i play celtic traditional music but the blue grassy take is very entertaining to see, and her singing is fantastic. her song solo on banjo as well, of :"tell me true" is one of the best songs i have heard.

    NPR Music releases the I'm With Her Tiny Desk concert today. I don't know if I can imbed the video until they release it on youtube, but you can find it HERE. The usual fine audio and video productions from the folks in DC.
