Sarah Jarosz singing "Tell Me True". She was 17 years old for this performance. I saw another video where she was 16 years old singing this song, which she wrote. Her 2009 album Song Up in Her Head reached #1 on the U.S. Bluegrass charts. Of course, selling a few dozen albums is probably enough to make it to the top of that particular chart, but still, quite impressive for someone who was all of 19 at the time and is not a thin blond cute chick chosen by the star machine for her looks rather than her singing and playing ability. (Not that Sarah is ugly or anything, but she's definitely not cut out of the same cookie cutter as, say, poor li'l Taylor Swift... she looks like a real person, not a Barbie doll, yo).
