Fridays After Five - Sarah White & the New Band

with Isabel Bailey Band


Sarah White & the New Band - Folk, Twang, Rock

“A dash of country twang and just enough rock and roll bite,” says RollingStone of songwriter-performer Sarah White, and that’s what you can expect to hear when White and the New Band perform.  With pedal steel (Charlie Bell), keys (Matty Metcalfe), electric guitars (Rusty Speidel), bass (Jeffrey Grosfeld) and drums (Seth Johnston), the New Band squarely delivers White’s unique American roots rock, steeped in good time ’70s country music, guided by pop instincts and punk rock attitude.  

White grew up on a Christmas tree farm in West Virginia with hippie parents who exposed her to a wide world of music including bluegrass, country, ’60s folk and ’70s rock music, and lots of time, space, and creative freedom. Early albums on the Jagjaguwar label post-University of Virginia  (Go Hoos!) speak to this variety of influences; subsequent years saw her perform with acts like Hall & Oates, Bonnie Prince Billy, Merle Haggard, and Dave Matthews Band Caravan. Deemed “a diamond in the rough” in the lo-fi era, White has ascended to the top of her own style, delivering magnetic sincerity with a distinct and powerful voice.
