Cold Chocolate and Cricket Tell the Weather
January 13 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm$10
Old Sloop Coffeehouse is proud to present a concert featuring the bands Cold Chocolate and Cricket Tell the Weather Saturday, January 13, at 7:30 PM at the handicap-accessible First Congregational Church of Rockport, 12 School St.
Cold Chocolate is a fresh and exciting Americana band with a unique sound that fuses bluegrass and folk with a dash of funk. With original tunes and technical prowess, this trio from Boston mesmerizes audiences with guitar, upright bass, percussion, and three-part harmony. Since their formation in 2011, Cold Chocolate has been gaining recognition for their high-energy performances. Cold Chocolate is led by guitarist and principal songwriter Ethan Robbins, and includes Kirsten Lamb on bass and Ariel Bernstein on percussion.
Cricket Tell the Weather is the creative project of Andrea Asprelli, award-winning songwriter and fiddler. She is backed by a collective of some of the finest players in New York’s roots music scene. Winners of the 2013 FreshGrass Award in North Adams, MA, Cricket features award-winning songs delivered with honest vocals and thoughtful arrangements with a modern edge. Growing up a classical musician in Colorado, Asprelli began playing bluegrass after she moved to the east coast, and was shaped by New England’s small but fiery local bluegrass communities. Cricket will perform as a quartet, featuring NYC musicians Doug Goldstein on banjo, Dave Speranza on bass, and Mike Robinson on guitar.
