We're just back from a really wonderful tour, and finally ready to celebrate the release of our new CD, "Nest of String."   We finished recording in June and received the newly minted CD only the day before we left Sarasota for our tour-- 18 days on the road, with dates in Savannah, Asheville, High Cove, Staunton, Arlington, VA, Morgantown, WVA, Columbus, Ohio, Cincinnati, Louisville, Knoxville, Nashville, and Atlanata.  We had a blast, but boy were our wings tired.  We're back now, and as much fun as we had on tour, we're glad to be home in Sarasota.  

We're inviting everyone to join us in celebrating the release of the new CD (as well as our homecoming) on September 14, at the Fogartyville Media and Arts Center.  That's 525 Kumquat Court (in the rear).  Over the summer, they've built a new dance floor at Fogartyville, so we hope to see a lot of movement going on!  There will be great food, and Passerine gifts for everybody.  Please come join the flock!

Admission will be $5.00 in advance, $7.00 at the door, benefitting WSLR (as well as helping us to pay off our debt for the production of the CD).  Tickets are available from WSLR.  

And, of course, be the first on your block to have a copy of the new CD!  (Also available from CD Baby.)

We look forward to seeing you!

"The melodic, almost haunting sounds of contemporary bluegrass/folk band Passerine could easily be the theme music for a biopic of Sarasota. Its blossoming arts scene, the modern bluesy tunes that creep down narrow roads and out of cafes mix well with the weeping moss on the trees and the free running miles of beach, sand and water. It’s the purity of an untainted oasis that makes the city so special and Passerine offers the same organic passion in its music."  Linda Day, SRQ Magazine

"Five-piece Sarasota string band Passerine is nothing fancy: As standard and strong harmonies sweep behind the stories of singer Carmela Pedicini, a fiddle saws its reassurance a plinking upright bass. The full-bodied sweep of an acoustic guitar brushes above the omnipresent sighs of an expertly played dobro. But the band's songs about the sweetest sights and biggest dreams, and the casual confidence with which they deliver them, offer the basic balm of folk music at its best: a song that speaks your own worries and sings a way back out of them. They'll play the Triangle three times in the next few days—tonight at The Cave, Wednesday at Caffe Driade and Thursday at Durham's Broad Street Café."  Grayson Currin, Independent Weekly

"Last but not least as our evening winds down is Passerine Folk Americana at it’s best! This band has a sound that is resonate and sultry. Passerine which also means an order of birds, when you hear their voices and instruments you feel free to fly and escape in their songs, my favorite song would have to be “Solitude” which feels like I am at one with the world while listening. The band members Carmela, Tanya, David and Miles connect on stage as if they understand what each song means to them, bringing the quad together as one soul."  Ed Midler, Creative Loafing
