Contributed by Sundilla Acoustic Concert Series
Crowes Pasture will make their long-awaited Sundilla debut with a performance on Thursday, June 10, at Pebble Hill. Showtime for this outdoor concert is 7:30 p.m. and $15 advance tickets are available at Spicer’s Music, Ross House Coffee and online at sundillamusic.com. Admission at the door will be $20.
The show will be performed outdoors at Pebble Hill, located on 101 S. Debardeleben in Auburn. Chairs will be available, though bringing personal folding chairs is suggested.
Monique Byrne and Andy Rogovin perform original music and eye-opening covers that reflect a mutual passion, sense of discovery and celebration of life. Their tightly blended vocal harmonies are mixed with an expressive instrumental style that is best described as “a banjo-guitar romance.” Crowes Pasture’s style of escapist folk transports and connects listeners through universal experiences in their skillfully crafted, emotional songwriting.
In just six years’ time, Crowes Pasture has quickly made waves with two EPs and three full-length albums. Their latest CD, “Slow It Down”, was released in June 2019 at the legendary Club Passim. Since its release, the title track earned Crowes Pasture a No.1 song, and the album debuted at No. 5 on the International Folk DJ Charts. They also had a #8 song for their cover of Mary Gauthier’s “Mercy Now”, a No.23 song for their cover of Bob Marley’s “Is This Love”, and they were the No. 8 Top Artist for June.
Crowes Pasture has been honored with nominations as Roots Act of the Year in the New England Music Awards, and Americana Artist of the Year in the Boston Music Awards for 2019. They were finalists for Best Group/Duo in the 2020 International Acoustic Music Awards, and have been named finalists once again for Best Group/Duo in the 2021 IAMAs, for their song “A Virtue and a Call”.

Sundilla is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization with an all-volunteer staff. Started in 1993 with an outdoor concert on the lawn at Pebble Hill, Sundilla started holding most of their concerts in the AUUF Fellowship Hall in 1996, thanks to the generosity of the AUUF. In 2017, Sundilla became the first- and so far only- venue to be presented with a SERFA Award for Contributions to Folk Music by the SouthEast Regional Folk Alliance.
In 2013, the first episode of The Sundilla Radio Hour was aired on WTSU in Troy. Since that time, the Sundilla Radio Hour has grown into a weekly show that is aired in Alabama, Georgia, Florida, New York, Colorado and Alaska.
