“…a beautiful cohesion of tight harmonies,acoustic brilliance, and fresh songwriting.”
A last-minute text request to play an off-the-cuff Telluride Bluegrass Festival show. Several songs workshopped in a bathroom on the fly. A late-night crowd immediately energized by the combined virtuosity of multi-instrumentalists Sara Watkins, Sarah Jarosz, and Aoife O’Donovan. This is how folk supergroup I’m With Her began, but the path was laid years before through numerous Grammy® wins, two seminal modern Americana bands (Watkins’ Nickel Creek and O’Donovan’s Crooked Still), and contributions to numerous acclaimed albums. By turns plaintive, warm, and bluesy, I’m With Her delivers indelibly pure vocal harmony, familial chemistry, and nimble instrumental interplay for music that The New York Times says “radiates togetherness.”
