Since her first appearance in the Big Room as a teenager, Sarah has become one of the most sought after acoustic artists performing today. Undercurrent, her latest album accentuates the growth and maturity that Jarosz, now 25, has achieved since graduating from New England Conservatory and moving to New York City. The change in approach garnered Jarosz two Grammy Awards in 2017—Best Folk Album for Undercurrent and Best American Roots Performance for “House Of Mercy.” Undercurrent also picked up the award for 2017 Album of the Year from Folk Alliance International.

Jarosz ended 2016 and began 2017 building on her previous successes in the UK and Ireland, including sold out shows at Union Chapel in London and City Halls in Glasgow. She also continues to make frequent appearances on the new Chris Thile-hosted A Prairie Home Companion. Sarah will tour throughout 2017 supporting Undercurrent, with musicians Jeff Picker on bass and Anthony da Costa on guitars and vocals. Opening the show will be Brother Roy.

Celebration IPA Release Party

Be it watching the leaves turn or building that first fire, we all have rituals that signal a change in the season. At the brewery, we’ve got our own annual tradition: the release of our Celebration Fresh Hop IPA.
In the 36 years we’ve been brewing Celebration, it’s become one of our most beloved releases. Celebration features the freshest hops of the harvest and is one of the few hop-forward holiday beers on the market. The beer is famous for its bold flavor, signature hop character and intense citrus and pine aromas.
Join us for an evening of revelry, live music, and food and beer for purchase as we toast the start of Celebration season.
Must be 21 or older.

The Steel Wheels

“Few groups have come as far in such a short period of time as The Steel Wheels…” – NPR’s Mountain Stage

“What sets The Steel Wheels from the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia apart from many bands is the combination of their stellar instrumentals, accentuated by the one of a kind lead vocal of [Trent] Wagler, and keenly supported by strong harmonies. Eric Brubaker on fiddle, Jay Lapp on mandolin, and Brian Dickel on bass weave in and out intricately throughout every performance.
Of course, exquisite harmonies remain a strength of the band. By making a social statement in uncertain times, listeners will want to lend their voices too. More than a decade into The Steel Wheels’ career, the simple act of singing together – something that carries them back to their Mennonite heritage – is still incredibly special. Join us for a very special musical evening. Get your tickets early as The Steel Wheels quickly sold out their previous visit.

Sam Bush Band

The legend returns to the Big Room. Three-time Grammy-winner Sam Bush of Bowling Green, Kentucky is an extraordinary mandolin player, an artful songwriter, and a dynamic singer who has been wowing audiences since the early 1970s when he co-founded the pioneering progressive bluegrass band, New Grass Revival. Since then, he’s recorded more than 20 albums, including seven solo releases, been dubbed the King of Telluride in honor of his many sizzling performances at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, and earned a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Americana Music Association. In addition, the International Bluegrass Music Association has named him Mandolin Player of the Year four times and the State of Kentucky has declared him the Father of Newgrass. Oh, and he was the National Junior Fiddle Champion three times. “I’ve been pretty lucky to play with almost every one of my heroes,” he says. “I’ve gotten to play with Bill Monroe, Doc Watson, Earl Scruggs, I’ve been to the mountain.” He’s also worked with such stalwarts as Emmylou Harris, Bela Fleck, Charlie Haden, Lyle Lovett, and Garth Brooks. Don’t miss this opportunity to see one of the most influential players of all time. Get your tickets early!
