MIXTAPE: Sarah Jarosz

Jun 1, 2013

MIXTAPE:  Sarah Jarosz

Anyone who attended Sarah Jarosz‘s previous LA performance knows that they were privy to something pretty special last June.  When the 21-year-old mando and banjo playing prodigy took to the Hotel Cafe stage a year ago, the packed room was nothing short of entranced.  This Thursday, Jarosz makes a return appearance in our fair city, playing the Troubadour on August 9 (tickets available here).  Before she arrived, Sarah shared the top five songs she’s been playing for this month’s MIXTAPE….

Artist:  The Talking Heads
Track:  ‘And She Was’
Album:  Little Creatures

‘This is one of the best songs to drive around listening to. I am currently obsessed with this band!’

 

Artist:  Joni Mitchell
Track:  ‘Free Man In Paris’
Album:  Court and Spark

‘I love the imagery in this song… Such great commentary on the music business and the longing to get away from it all sometimes.’

 

Artist:  Paul Simon
Track:  ‘Slip Slidin’ Away’
Album:  Greatest Hits, Etc

‘Simply one of the best songs ever. I never get tired of listening to it. Paul Simon has such a way of making the words and music fit together perfectly.’

 

Artist:  John Lennon (also the Donny Hathaway version)
Track:  ‘Jealous Guy’
Album:  Imagine

‘A great song by Lennon… An incredibly funky, ridiculously awesome cover by Donny Hathaway. ‘

 

Artist:  Gillian Welch 
Track:  ‘Hard Times’
Album:  The Harrow and the Harvest

‘She’s a genius and one of my all time greatest heroes. This song is timeless.’
