Based in Brooklyn, Cricket Tell the Weather is an indie string band featuring bluegrass-inspired original music. Winners of the 2013 FreshGrass Award, Cricket is rooted in the bluegrass tradition, and expands to include rock, pop, and jazz elements.
Award-winning songwriters Andrea Asprelli (fiddle) and Jason Borisoff (guitar) received a blue ribbon in 2011 at the Podunk Bluegrass Festival Songwriting Competition for their co-written song “Remington”. They are joined by Doug Goldstein on the banjo and Jeff Picker on bass.
The quartet’s voice carries a new spirit that explores a century of influences, owing as much to the traditions that inspired bluegrass to the journey that follows.
The band has been featured at Joe Val Bluegrass Festival, Del Fest, Ossipee Valley Music Festival, Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, Brandywine Folk Festival, and FreshGrass Festival, all in their first year. Cricket is set to release their independent debut album this month.
