On Saturday, May 25 at 8:00 PM Andrea Asprelli & Jason Borisoff of ‘Cricket Tell the Weather’ present a concert featuring the music of Townes Van Zandt at the Nelson Town Hall. Admission is $15/$12(seniors, students, or in advance).
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. Moving from Northampton, MA to Syracuse, NY to New Haven, CT, she met many bluegrass, folk, and old-time musicians who inspired her along the way before forming Cricket Tell the Weather and setting up shop in Brooklyn, NY. Cricket performs mostly as a quartet, whose collective cast of NYC musicians includes Doug Goldstein and Hilary Hawke on banjo, Dave Speranza and Sam Weber on bass, and Mike Robinson, Jason Borisoff, and Jeff Picker on guitar.
The concert will feature a set of songs by Townes Van Zandt that Andrea and Jason compiled for the Masters Radio Series, a monthly concert series at Pete’s Candy Store in Brooklyn, NY featuring the music of a single songwriter on the third Thursdays of the month. A second set will feature Andrea’s songwriting and arrangements.
