Sarah Jarosz’s star power reached new heights in February when the singer-songwriter scored two trophies at the 59th annual Grammy Awards. One, for Best Folk Album, celebrates her 2016 LP Undercurrent, a collection of songs that highlights the Austin-born songbird’s vocal and writing prowess. Called “the silver-voiced, silver-fingered, silver-penned Sarah Jarosz” by “A Prairie Home Companion” host Chris Thile, she’s also a skilled player on stringed instruments, including mandolin, guitar and banjo. The mistress of Americana opens the KCP Presents 2017-18 performing arts season and honors the Lyndon Institute’s 150th anniversary with a spirited concert blending folk, bluegrass and country influences.
