"Often gathered around a single microphone, their sound will take you away to dusk on a back porch, or into the heart of an old-time speakeasy in an Appalachian valley."
— Jay Psaros, South Shore Magazine
“Sparrow Blue sing with the kind of honest charm and colloquial voice that transports you from a metallic time machine into a swinging barn dance in 1947. They make you feel like the war is over. In this troubled world, we need their kind of story songs right now. The kind of songs that come from work boots and cotton dresses, three chords and the truth woven around two voices, fiddle and a guitar. The kind of music that makes you feel like we might be able to turn this place around. ”
— Ellis Paul, award-winning performer/songwriter

Sparrow Blue opening for Crowe's Pasture
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.
