Even when she was a teenage prodigy, Sarah Jarosz seemed less like a wunderkind than a fully mature artist trapped in a young body. And now that she’s in her mid-20s, Jarosz’s full flowering as an artist and record-maker is truly impressive to hear. Her new album “Undercurrent” (Sugar Hill Records) has some delectable and highly skilled pure pop touches – especially the gorgeous, gliding “Green Lights” – to go with Jarosz’s always-impressive instrumental work. She plays Saturday at Saxapahaw’s Haw River Ballroom.

Doors open at 7 p.m., music starts at 8 and tickets are $20-$22. See hawriverballroom.com for details.
