Founded in 2009, Passerine has been touring nationally since 2012, playing every sort of venue from coffee houses to pubs, from intimate listening rooms to big festival stages. They finished their 3rd CD just before last year's Florida Folk Festival. Their music occupies a zone somewhere between modern folk, progressive bluegrass, and what is loosely called Americana. By combining diverse musical interests with instrumentation usually
associated with a traditional string band, and with vocal harmonies that sometimes move outside the usual structures, Passerine has created a sound that is both familiar and unique, whether the song is a sweet ballad, a foot-stomping bluegrass tune, or one of their more rocking originals.
