Build Me Up from Bones Su­gar Hill

Build Me Up from Bones, which was re­leased in the US last year, is now be­ing given a bit of a push in Ire­land to help spread the word about Jarosz’s four shows in Kilkenny, Dublin, Cork and Galway next month. Judg­ing by the qual­ity of song and per­for­mance, Ir­ish au­di­ences are in for a treat. Jarosz, a pre­co­cious 23-year-old Texan, is part of a so-called pro­gres­sive acous­tic mu­sic genre, led by Chris Thile through his solo work and the mu­sic he makes with the Punch Broth­ers and Nickel Creek. Their sig­na­ture is a firm ground­ing in tra­di­tional blue­grass, which they stretch with some rel­ish. Jarosz has caught the bug. These songs and per­for­mances (a heap of se­ri­ous mu­si­cians, in­clud­ing Thile, are en­listed) dis­play tech­ni­cal vir­tu­os­ity, imag­i­na­tion and sen­si­tiv­ity. Jarosz has a rich voice and the con­fi­dence to go with it; wit­ness her read­ing of Dy­lan’s Sim­ple Twist of Fate. sarah­jarosz.com
