On Saturday, January 13th, The Blue Moon Coffeehouse in Rockland, MA hosts a CD release party for Sparrow Blue. Sparrow Blue is 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.
Since then, Sparrow Blue has performed at venues such as the Spire Center for the Performing Arts, Club Passim, TOAD Cambridge, Atwoods Tavern, and Rockwood Music Hall. In November of 2015 they released their debut album,Mabel,which Red Line Roots called “a sweet rootsy sound that is clean and crisp as it displays hints of Americana goodness” and South Shore Living called “lilting, dark, and spellbindingly catchy.” Although Katy plays the guitar on this song, she’s actually known for her killer fiddling! The address is 45 Webster St. Rockland.
Tickets are $10 at the door. The show starts at 7:30 p.m., and there’s an open mic in between sets by the band so bring along your instruments.
