Sparrow Blue & Crowes Pasture at Tillotson Center

Sparrow Blue are Katy Boc and Todd Nickerson. They met in 2014 and began writing songs together after discovering a mutual love for American roots music. At the time they were each playing in different bands, but it wasn’t long until they began performing together as a duo.

Crowes Pasture is the Boston-based acoustic duo of Monique Byrne and Andy Rogovin. They draw from old-time, folk and bluegrass traditions, including such artists as Gillian Welch/David Rawlings and Ian & Sylvia.

Admission: $10; Students $5

The Colonial Theatre Presents: Shovels & Rope

An American folk duo from Charleston, South Carolina, Shovels & Rope is composed of husband and wife Michael Trent and Cary Ann Hearst. Combining threads from their individual solo careers, Shovels and Rope combines elements of country and punk rock to create its own brand of raw, American roots music. The duo originally came together when they  collaborated for a one-off album, “Shovels and Rope” in 2008. A year later, the two artists married, and today Shovels and Rope boasts a celebrated discography, featuring releases like 2012’s “O’ Be Joyful” and “Swimmin’ Time.”
