Sarah Adams

Sarah Adams grew up playing music in Dahlonega, Georgia. She was one of the first students to participate in the Georgia Pick & Bow Traditional Music School program, learning and later teaching mandolin, and performed regularly with her brother and sister throughout north Georgia. After graduating from college, Sarah returned to the region and studied fiddle from Mick and Evan Kinney. She strives to play music with character and enjoys the moment that she doesn’t quite know what note she’ll try playing next.
