Sarah Jarosz plays The Grey Eagle on Tuesday, Nov. 19

Although singer-songwriter and bluegrass musician Sarah Jarosz is just 22, she’s already been nominated for a Grammy. More than once. She began her recording career right out of high school. By then she could already play guitar, clawhammer banjo, mandolin and octave mandolin. Her debut album, “Song Up in Her Head,” featured guest artists Chris Thile, Darrell Scott, Stuart Duncan and Jerry Douglas — pretty much the who’s who with whom establish musicians are clamoring to collaborate. This year, in addition to graduating from the New England Conservatory of Music, she also released her third album, “Build Me Up from Bones,” through Sugar Hill Records. “Sarah wrote nine of the 11 tracks, the other two are covers: ‘Book of Right On’ by Joanna Newsom and ‘Simple Twist of Fate’ by Bob Dylan,” says a press release.

Jarosz’s current tour brings her to The Grey Eagle on Tuesday, Nov. 19. Brian Wright also performs. Fully seated show. 8 p.m., $15 advance / $18 day of show.
