I’m With Her

Thursday, May 23, 7:30pm, Sandler Center for the Performing Arts, Virginia Beach

“Together their sound is both ethereal and purposeful, a combination of searing musicianship and tender vocals. It’s their harmony singing, however, that is their trademark – their voices, each with very different timbres and inflections, create a mesmeric blend that seems, even live, to operate as a single, multi-piped instrument. It’s the music – crafted by ever-changing combinations of fiddle, guitar, mandolin and banjo – that carries the real emotional charge and communicates with such intimacy you could all be sharing a sofa.”
-The Guardian, London

“The audience was completely hushed, awaiting each fiddle line or banjo lick, each unexpected harmonic turn, each precise swell of three-part harmony. The band’s concentration wasn’t just a performance; it was an invitation to listen more closely.”
-The New York Times

A band of extraordinary chemistry and exquisite musicianship, I’m With Her features Sara Watkins, Sarah Jarosz and Aoife O’Donovan--multi-Grammy Award winners who have individually released multiple solo recordings and tours, co-founded two seminal bands (Nickel Creek and Crooked Still), and contributed to critically acclaimed albums from a host of iconic artists. After years of crossing paths at festivals, the three musicians came together for an off-the-cuff performance at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival in 2014—and so a band was born. Variety calls their mesmerizing sound “Bliss…stunning female harmony singing and virtuosity.” Don’t miss this chance to hear three amazing musicians inspire each other to new heights in this concert!
