Cricket Tell the Weather is a Brooklyn based string band with its roots deep in the bluegrass tradition, embracing folk, old-time, and spirituals as a backdrop for their original songwriting. Winners of the 2013 FreshGrass Award, Cricket formed in the fall of 2012 and has toured the Northeast, establishing a base throughout the bluegrass and folk festival and concert series circuits. They’ve been featured at Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, Del Fest, Ossipee Valley Music Festival, Joe Val Bluegrass Festival, and Strawberry Park Bluegrass Festival. The band has twice been awarded the Neighborhood Arts & Heritage Grant from the City of Bridgeport, and is actively involved in providing bluegrass workshops to students of all ages under their “American Roots Revival” workshop series. In 2014, Cricket released its independent eponymous debut album of original music, recorded at Signature Sounds studio in Pomfret Center, CT. Bringing with them heart, enthusiasm, humor, and an appreciation of tradition, Cricket’s voice is personal in a way that stretches against categories, and familiar in a way that honors those who have come before.
Opening: Yani Batteau & The Styles, described as Americana Soul, a little Patsy, a little June Carter!
