Song Review: I’m With Her - “Hasse A’s->Fire on the Mountain->Hasse A’s” (Live at Freshgrass 2015)

While their two studio recordings focused on their beguiling harmony vocals, the women of I’m With Her show off their instrumental prowess on a newly released concert video.

Captured at Freshgrass 2015, I’m With Her’s take on Väsen’s “Hasse A’s" features Sarah Jarosz (mandolin) and Aoife O'Donovan (guitar) laying down solid rhythm over which fiddler Sara Watkins saws like a woman on a musical mission.

The only vocals come courtesy of O'Donovan after Watkins steers her bandmates into a couple of bars of “Fire on the Mountain.” It’s then back to a quick reprise of “Hasse A’s,” and the brief, mostly instrumental, medley ends far too soon.

The trio came together in 2014 and released one single, a cover of John Hiatt’s “Crossing Muddy Waters” b/w an a cappella rendering of Nina Simone’s “Be My Husband.“ In July, they’ll hit the road with Punch Brothers and Julian Lage on their American Acoustic tour.

In the meantime, there’s this gem.
