Upstate New York singer/songwriter/fiddler Sara Milonovich, with Greg Anderson, delivers a heady harvest of original roots, folk, and alt-Americana gems.

Her latest album, 'Northeast', is packed with atmospheric, powerful pieces, most written by Milonovich, with words that paint poignant, personal scenes, and melodies that linger long after the last listen. As an interpreter Sara is a singular force as well, weaving her own experiences and artistic voice through the threads of well-chosen, lived-in covers of songs by the likes of Josh Ritter, Karine Polwart, Joe Strummer, and Led Zeppelin.

Sara, who was named 2022 Americana Artist of the Year by the Capital District Thomas Edison Music Awards, is also a seasoned side musician to such artists as Richard Shindell, Pete Seeger, Eliza Gilkyson, and Jim Gaudet and the Railroad Boys, and a featured player in the recent smash Broadway musical 'Come From Away'.

Raised on her family’s working farm in northeast upstate New York, she started on violin at age four and rapidly established a regional reputation as a top-flight fiddler. At 16, Sara dropped out of school and joined legendary Celtic bluegrass outfit the McKrells. Between accompanying other mentors — including Seeger, on his Grammy-winning 2008 album 'At 89' — she released 2009’s Daisycutter. After a 2011 U.S. State Department/Jazz at Lincoln Center-sponsored “Rhythm Road: American Music Abroad” tour through Kosovo, Bulgaria, Moldova, and Turkey, she recorded 2015’s 'Waiting for the Stars', which earned her enthusiastic reviews and comparisons to paragons like Shawn Colvin and Sheryl Crow.

She will be joined by her longtime musical partner, guitarist and producer, Greg Anderson.

Milonovich is a world class fiddler and very talented singer, and her accompanist has a simple versatility with the acoustic guitar that sounds a lot easier than it is to accomplish. These musicians are obvious lifers.” ~ North Coast Journal
