Friday Music: Shadow Blues
My favorite girl band, "I'm with Her" (Sara Watkins on fiddle, Sarah Jarosz on banjo, and Aoife O'Donovan vocals and guitar) played on A Prairie Home Companion last week. This gorgeous song is Shadow Blues by Colorado singer/songwriter Laura Veirs.
Jarosz and O'Donovan are alumnae of The New England Conservatory. O'Donovan is about to put out a solo album and she also plays with the group Crooked Still. Jarosz plays with her own band and seems to be just about everywhere right now. Watkins is a founding member of Nickel Creek and is currently also playing with The Watkins Family Band.
Happy Friday! Enjoy!
