Passerine Plays Fogartyville on December 11

| Arlene Sweeting |

Passerine, an Americana/folk quartet composed of Carmela Pedicini (vocals, guitar), David Brain (dobro), Doug Conroy (bass, vocals), and Sara Stovall (violin, vocals)—are returning to the Fogartyville stage on Saturday, December 11th at 8pm. Tickets are $15 for members and $18 for nonmembers.  Advance tickets can be purchased online at or by calling 941-894-6469.

With inventive vocal harmonies and song-writing, supported by the sounds of acoustic strings, Passerine offers a fresh take on traditional folk and bluegrass music as well as a repertoire of original songs that range from sweet ballads to the edgier side of contemporary Americana.

Founded in 2009, Passerine has been featured at music festivals around the state and has been touring nationally since 2012, playing every sort of venue from intimate listening rooms to big festival stages. Their music occupies a zone somewhere between modern folk, progressive bluegrass, and what is loosely called “Americana.”

With original songs as well as their own arrangements of traditional songs, Passerine hopes to carry on the living tradition of acoustic folk music rooted in popular experience, memory, and shared wisdom. By combining diverse musical interests with instrumentation usually associated with a traditional string band, and with vocal harmonies that sometimes move outside the usual structures, Passerine has created a sound with a personality that is both familiar and unique, whether the song is a sweet ballad, a foot-stomping bluegrass tune, or one of their more rocking originals.
