The Sparkle Barn is pleased to announce that Vermont folk music group Cricket Blue will be giving a live performance on Saturday, March 21st from 7 to 9pm. Laura Heaberlin and Taylor Smith are the musicians of Cricket Blue. They have fantastic stories and cast of characters they share in the eleven songs on their debut album Serotinalia. You feel like you are having a book read, no sung to you. Seven Days called them “indie folk with soul and intellect”. They’ve played stages and folk festivals around the United States and Canada.
They are a very gifted duo, who selected the album’s title, Serotinalia, because it derives from the botanical term “serotiny”. Serotiny is a trait certain plants have of releasing their seeds in response to an environmental trigger instead of a point of maturation. “We think people are serotinal in the way some plants are,” Smith says. “You don’t mature on a calendar schedule, but in response to these impinging forces.”
Join us on Saturday March 21st to hear the tales of their delightful characters, and maybe even experience your own serotinal surge. Visit their website to listen a bit before you hear them live. https://www.cricketbluemusic.com
Tickets are $15.00 and are available through the Sparkle Barn’s website. This event will be in the Sparkle Barn second floor event room, which is not handicap accessible. Seating is not reserved, so please arrive early – doors open at 6:30.
