What others are saying
"New England banjo-and-guitar duo Crowes Pasture take their name from a wonderful Cape Cod beach in Massachusetts, USA. Monique Byrne and Andy Rogovin’s album, Edge Of America is peppered with fabulous harmonies and beautiful instrumentation, and their sensitive songwriting weaves around the anthemic material of Dylan, Donovan and Cohen; it’s pure Americana. FolkWales verdict: Thumbs up!" - Folk Wales Online Magazine
“An uncanny blend of voices… the duo sound born to mesh their voices. His, a handsome, sandpapery timbre, and hers, angelic, with a lovely wilt.”
- Bill Copeland Music News
"With voices blended in lovely harmonies and a passionate approach to musical performance, Crowes Pasture evokes memories of classic folk duos like Ian & Sylvia, while simultaneously staking out creative new ground as part of the 21st century folk scene in New England."
-Nick Noble, host of THE FOLK REVIVAL on WICN, Worcester, MA
“Crowes Pasture song, Madison, is reminiscent of the great alt-country band, the Jayhawks, particularly in the vocal blend, just really tight, close harmonies, in the Everly Brothers style. You can hear a little Gillian Welch/Dave Rawlings in there as well.”
-Patrick Coman, WUMB Radio Host of "Local Folk" and founder "For the Sake of the Song" concert series
"Superb songwriting, harmony singing, prosody, performance, good taste and downright adorability make Crowes Pasture the best thing to come out of Newton since Fig Newtons. Listen to the anthemic "Madison," and you'll know why we're hooked."
-Rebecca Hall and Ken Anderson, Hungrytown, nationally touring, award-winning folk duo
"What a dynamic duo! Skillfully crafted, emotional songwriting, compelling vocals and tasty accompaniment abound. The fact that they are husband and wife and successfully weave this all together with an approachable, laid back stage presence makes it all the more inviting and real."
-Chris Eastburn, award winning composer & arranger
“Simplicity and sincerity, along with a perfect harmonic blend of two voices, make the sound of Crowes Pasture something to treasure. Add to that two of the loveliest people you'd ever want to know and you have something very special. This is how music was meant to be.”
— Al Kniola, The Back Porch, 88.1 WVPE Public Radio
