PAWLING, N.Y. -- Cricket Tell the Weather, a songwriter-based string band from New York City, will bring its original take on folk and bluegrass to Daryl's House Club in Pawling on Thursday.
Winners of the 2013 FreshGrass Award and 2011 Podunk Songwriting Competition, Cricket is slated to release its second album of original music this summer. The collection is composed of original, contemporary songs with an independent bluegrass and old-time aesthetic.
The band has recently released an album preview video of the original song "Photographs" written by front woman Andrea Asprelli.
Brooklyn-based Cricket Tell the Weather, a folk roots project of fiddler/singer/songwriter Asprelli, showcases award-winning original songs delivered with honest vocals and supported by some of NYC’s finest acoustic musicians.
Cricket has toured throughout the Northeast U.S. since releasing its self-titled debut album last year.
Asprelli came to the east coast from Colorado’s front range. A classical musician from an early age, she was introduced to folk and traditional music while studying in Canterbury, England.
She came back to the states to find a lush community of folk and bluegrass musicians, and found many homes within them throughout New York and New England that supported and nurtured her as a songwriter, vocalist and fiddler.
In 2011, she won the Podunk Bluegrass Songwriting Competition for her co-written song “Remington,” the opening track of Cricket’s debut album.
Cricket's current tour will be showcasing the talents of Mike Robinson (guitar), Hilary Hawke (banjo) and Dave Speranza (bass).
