Review and photographs by Tim Mack
The Sarah Jarosz pictured on the cover of her most recent album, Build Me Up From Bones, has a somber look, her hair up swept, with a high-necked collar and lipstick, her gaze focused just beyond the camera. The Sarah Jarosz who took the stage at The Egg last Friday night wore an easy smile, a bright summer dress and casual cowgirl boots, as if she were dressed for a night with good friends. Which it was.
Returning to Albany nearly two years to the day after her last appearance on the Swyer Theatre stage, the now 22-year old Texan showed a comfortable confidence in her stage presence, her bandmates and the very appreciative and attentive audience that came out to see her.
