I’m With Her is Sara Watkins, Sarah Jarosz and Aoife O’Donovan. An impromptu show in 2014 at the Sheridan Opera House in Telluride, CO, sparked the formation of I’m With Her and sent the trio touring the world together the next year. Along the way, I’m With Her formed a special, family-like chemistry, garnering acclaim for their unique blend of instrumental interplay combined with their indelible harmonies, as the New York Times describes, “... that could be sweetly ethereal, or as tightly in tandem as country sibling teams like the Everly Brothers, or as hearty as mountain gospel.” Their debut album, See You Around, was recorded in Box, England, with Ethan Johns at Real World Studios.
O’Donovan previously wooed audiences at Shetland Folk Festival with her band Crooked Still, while Jarosz and her trio performed to a sold out Mareel auditorium in January 2017. Watkins, who will visit the islands for the first time, first made her name as fiddler and vocalist with Nickel Creek (also featuring mandolin wizard Chris Thile and Sara’s brother Sean Watkins).
