Folk / singer/songwriter / Americana
As we make final preparations for travel, there have been a couple of changes
in the schedule for our upcoming tour.
Are we headed your way? Or do you happen to know people in any of the areas
we're hitting on the tour? We could really use your help. We've
made Facebook events for each of our stops. Please consider sending invitations
to your friends, relatives, business associates, acquaintances and Facebook people
in the relevant parts of the country.
The most recent addition is a show at the Urbana-Champagne Independent Media Center.
We are very excited about playing in this amazing place. The UCIMC "is a grassroots
organization committed to using media production and distribution as tools for promoting
social and economic justice in the Champaign County area. We foster the creation
and distribution of media, art, and narratives emphasizing underrepresented voices
and perspectives and promote empowerment and expression through media and arts education."
The hardest thing about touring to new places is that it is a whole lot harder to
get the word out. If you can help us get a few extra people to turn up, it
REALLY makes a difference. Not only do we get to play for more people this
trip, but it makes it more likely that we can get invited back in the future.

"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
