Sarah Jarosz is the second recipient of the FreshGrass Composition Commission, given yearly to an artist whose work reflects the FreshGrass mission to preserve and support innovative roots music. Jarosz will write an original suite of new material for the commission and premiere it during her set at FreshGrass. She’s on a hot streak with this award: her fourth album, Undercurrent, which shifted the emphasis from her skills as a multi-instrumentalist to her songwriting and vocal performance garnered her two Grammy Awards in 2017 — for Best Folk Album of the Year and for Best American Roots Performance for “House Of Mercy.” She also picked up the award for 2017 Folk Album of the Year from Folk Alliance International.
