Crowes Pasture is the acoustic duo of Monique Byrne and Andy Rogovin. Based in Boston, the duo brings leather and lace harmonies to classic and contemporary folk music in a style that draws from old-time, folk and bluegrass traditions. Performing on guitar and banjo, the duo draws inspiration from both traditional folk storytellers like Woody Guthrie and Bob Dylan as well as icons of vocal harmony like the Carter Family and Simon & Garfunkel. Their music invites comparisons with the likes of The Civil Wars, Gillian Welch/David Rawlings, The Milk Carton Kids and Ian & Sylvia.
In October 2017, Crowes Pasture had the #3 Song and #7 Album on the National Folk DJ Charts.
“Crowes Pasture evokes memories of classic folk duos like Ian & Sylvia, while simultaneously staking out creative new ground as part of the 21st century folk scene in New England.”
– Nick Noble, “The Folk Revival” on WICN (Worcester, MA)
Rock, folk and “angry emo” Deb Todd Wheeler, an award-winning visual artist, hosts live music events that welcome friends of all abilities to participate and share their voice. Deb is the founding member of the roving LENNYcollective, which has performed at the Iceland Airwaves Festival in Reykjavik, Rockwood Music Hall and Urban Stage in NYC, and the Lily Pad in Cambridge, MA. In a rare public appearance, Deb will play songs for you from her new album, Radio Silence. She has described her songwriting style as “angsty emo meets arty eclectic folk,” though collaborator Josh Margolis has disagreed, urging: “Just face it Deb, you write rock songs.” When asked to supply a quote from a reviewer about her music, Deb sent us the following from Pat Todd, Director of the 18-piece CT swing band Tuxedo Junction: “All my kids are geniuses.” If you are interested in attending LENNYcollective events, please join the mailing list at https://lennyfest.weebly.com.
