Folk Supergroup I’m With Her Kicks Off Canadian Leg of International Tour at the Chan Centre

Chan Centre for the Performing Arts30 Sep '18 @ 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM
    The Chan Centre for the Performing Arts at the University of British Columbia (UBC) introduces to Vancouver audiences the ethereal harmonies of I’m With Her on September 30, 2018, at 7pm in the Chan Shun Concert Hall. The exquisite vocal and instrumental arrangements by Sara Watkins (fiddle), Sarah Jarosz (mandolin), and Aoife O’Donovan (guitar) will command the stage in their first Canadian performance on the Overland Tour celebrating the release of their debut album See You Around.
     
    The multi-Grammy Award winning “alliance of Americana virtuosos” (New York Times) has earned critical acclaim for their first collaboration, but each came onto the scene of folk and progressive bluegrass music on their own merit. Watkins, Jarosz, and O’Donovan were well aware of one another’s career over the years, but it wasn’t until an impromptu performance at the 2014 Telluride Bluegrass Festival that they came together for the first time as artists. The ease with which they fell into a rhythm in that initial concert motivated them to form a band. The name — I’m With Her — predates the political machinations of the 2016 presidential election in the United States, but nevertheless speaks to the solidarity the three found in one another amidst a conservative bluegrass realm, historically monopolized by male musicians.
     
    California native Watkins was a founding member and fiddler in renowned bluegrass trio Nickel Creek, alongside her brother Sean Watkins and mandolinist Chris Thile. The group won the 2003 Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Folk Album, before breaking up in 2007. Watkins went on to release several solo albums, including Sun Midnight Sun, and has performed alongside Fiona Apple, Questlove, and The Decemberists.
     
    O’Donovan was the lead singer of Boston-based Crooked Still, a quintet consisting of Corey DiMario, Rushad Eggleston, Gregory Liszt, and later Tristan Clarridge and Brittany Haas. The high-energy band drew from the stylings of Bill Monroe, the “Father of Bluegrass.”
     
    Born in 1991, Jarosz grew up listening to Watkins and O’Donovan’s bands. The Texan mandolin prodigy first met Watkins when she was 9 years old, and would eventually develop a stunning solo career. Her fourth album Undercurrent won two Grammy Awards in 2016, including Best Folk Album.
     
    Their distinct voices and instrumental plucking come together as a single instrument in concert, emphasizing their nuanced understanding of perfectly balanced melodies. See You Around features hits like “Game to Lose,” “I-89,” and “Wild One,” and was co-produced by Ethan Johns, who has also worked with Paul McCartney, Rufus Wainwright, and Ryan Adams.
