Singer/songwriter Sarah Jarosz to appear at Tryon Fine Arts Center Friday, June 3.

On Friday, June 3, singer/songwriter Sarah Jarosz will be at Tryon Fine Arts Center for an 8 p.m. performance, accompanied by Alex Hargreaves on fiddle and Nathaniel Smith on cello.

A 2009 Grammy nominee, the 20-year-old Jarosz has taken the Americana and bluegrass world by storm, with a release this month of her second album, “Follow Me Down.”

In her first recording in 2009, “Song Up in Her Head,” she chose a more traditional bluegrass sound. With the new release, Jarosz explores other musical ideas, “changing from a sweet-sounding folksinger to a sultry and contemporary musician,” hails NPR radio. “The fact that she’s convincing at both is pretty remarkable.”
