Sara Caswell at Hermit Woods July 27th

Thursday 6pm-9pm | Hermit Woods Winery & Eatery| 72 Main Street, Meredith 

Sara on violin and hardanger d'amore is joined by Jesse Lewis on guitar, Ike Sturm on bass, and Michael W. Davis on drums.

In the eighteen years since she arrived in New York City, Sara Caswell has become the first call violinist for creative bandleaders in the jazz world and beyond. Her credentials include tours and recordings with luminaries including Esperanza Spalding, Fred Hersch, Regina Carter, Bruce Springsteen, Brad Mehldau, John Patitucci, Dave Stryker, and others.

Caswell has ranked high on the DownBeat Critics and Readers Polls every year since 2013. Aside from 2013’s acclaimed Alive in the Singing Air by the Caswell Sisters, the group that Sara co-leads with her vocalist sister Rachel, Caswell has not released an album under her own name in over 17 years. Her two well-received solo albums, First Song (2000) and But Beautiful (2005), were both recorded prior to her move to New York in the fall of 2004.

That long delay comes to an end with the release of The Way To You, the much-anticipated album by the Sara Caswell Quartet in March 2023 via Anzic Records, The Way To You features the stellar band that Caswell has led for the past decade - their longevity is in ample evidence throughout this gorgeous collection, shining through in its sensitive interplay and nuanced expressiveness.
