Sparrow Blue opening for Crowe's Pasture

Amazing Things Art Center

Crowes Pasture is the Boston-based acoustic duo of Monique Byrne and Andy Rogovin. The duo brings leather and lace harmonies to classic and contemporary folk music in a style that draws from old-time, folk and bluegrass traditions, including such artists as Gillian Welch/David Rawlings, Ian & Sylvia and the Civil Wars.

The title song from the duo’s second full-length CD, “Edge of America” debuted at #3 on the FolkDJ charts in October 2017, with the album itself reaching #7.

Their first full-length CD was released in May of 2016, and stayed on the FolkDJ charts for several months, peaking at #20. Songs from both albums can be heard on folk radio stations across the U.S. and on four continents.
