Marina & Berna — Crowes Pasture opens
Cape Ann favorites Marina & Berna will appear as part of the Old Sloop Presents concert series Saturday, January 7. The performance will be in the handicap-accessible Fellowship Hall of the First Congregational Church of Rockport, 12 School St. at 7:30pm. Folk duo Crowes Pasture will open the show.
Marina Evans and Bernardo Baglioni are an international folk/americana duo who divide their time between Marina’s native Rockport and Bernardo’s native Italy. Combining Marina’s sultry vocals & unusual melodies with the raw, gritty edge of Bernardo’s slide guitar, soulful voice, and the sweet interjections of his mandolin, the duo’s sound has been refined over years together on the road, the stage, and in the studio.
Monique Byrne and Andy Rogovin of Crowes Pasture perform moving and inspirational songs that are sometimes joyful, sometimes wistful, and oftentimes, poignant, and that reflect a mutual passion for life, family, and humanity. Their intimately blended vocal harmonies are mixed with an expressive and unique instrumental style that is best described as “a banjo-guitar romance.”
Advance tickets are $15 for adults and $5 for those age 18 and under. Visit oldslooppresents.org, John Tarr Store in Rockport, or The Bookstore of Gloucester. The suggested contribution at the door is $20 for adults, $5 for those age 18 and under, and $40 for families.
