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.

PRESS

"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
