Sarah Jarosz goes beyond her comfort zone on third album

Sarah Jarosz was 18 and doe-eyed when she released her debut album, just a few months before she also entered her first year at New England Conservatory.

“I definitely did ponder the idea of just going straight into the music career,” she told the Globe in 2009, shortly after arriving here from her native Wimberley, Texas, not far from Austin. “But there’s always more to learn, and I also didn’t want to miss out on the college experience.”
