AMERI-KINDA-GRASS= Passerine. These 4 create a sound that is familiar and unique whether it be a sweet ballad, a foot stompin bluegrass tune or a rockin original. So happy to have them back on our ACMA stage!
Formed in 2009, Passerine’s distinctive sound combines vocal harmonies, the crisp rhythms of an acoustic guitar, the haunting voices of the fiddle and dobro (resonator slide guitar), the resonant lows of an acoustic bass. With inventive vocal harmonies and song-writing, supported by the sounds of acoustic strings, this dynamic group offers a fresh take on traditional folk and bluegrass music as well as a repertoire of original songs that range from sweet ballads to the edgier side of contemporary Americana.
Passerine is singer/songwriter/guitarist Carmela Pedicini, David Brain on dobro, Sara Stovall on violin and vocals, and Doug Conroy on bass guitar and vocals. They stay busy touring around Florida. Outside of Florida has taken them as far north as Maine and Massachusetts. In 2017, Passerine spent a month in Germany during an international European tour. Their latest album, “Shiny Things” was released in May, 2023.
