Crowes Pasture Folk Duo: October 28, 2022

The Marlborough Arts Center is hosting the delightful Crowes Pasture Folk Duo for the 4th Friday @ the Arts Cafe on October 28, 2022.

A roots-infused, internationally touring folk duo, Crowes Pasture performs sometimes joyful, and oftentimes, poignant, songs that reflect a mutual passion, sense of discovery and celebration of the human connection. Monique’s romantic clawhammer banjo playing and Andy’s expressive guitar picking are enlivened by their personal chemistry, intimate harmonies and unique instrumental style that can only be described as a “banjo-guitar romance.”

Crowes Pasture has been a supporting act for The Kennedys and The Small Glories, and has performed at nationally renowned folk venues such as Club Passim, Shalin Liu Performance Center, Rockwood Music Hall, Rose Garden Coffeehouse and The Bull Run. Crowes Pasture was nominated for Americana Artist of the Year (Boston Music Awards) and Roots Act of the Year (New England Music Awards) in 2019 and named Finalist for Best Group/Duo in the International Acoustic Music Awards in 2020 and 2021. The duo have had eight singles reach Top 10 Songs on the Folk Alliance International Folk Chart, including their #1 hit, “Slow it Down,” the title track of their 2019 album. Fresh from touring in Southern Ontario and Quebec (Summer 2022), the duo are currently recording their fourth album, with award winning producer Eric Lichter of Connecticut’s Dirt Floor Recording Studios.

Admission is $10/person at the door. Doors open at 7:00 pm. The concert begins at 7:30 pm. The Connecticut Watercolor Society’s Fall Exhibition paintings are still on display, an added pleasure as background for the music. There is ample parking and the Arts Center is ADA accessible. Masks are recommended.
