Cricket Tell the Weather takes a genuine approach that is, at once, simple and sophisticated — a style that reflects Asprelli’s own aesthetics. Born into a musical family, Asprelli only began her foray into fiddle music in her twenties, after becoming inspired by New England’s small but fiery bluegrass communities. Her voice as a songwriter came through in 2011, when she was awarded 1st place in the Podunk Bluegrass Songwriting Competition for her co-written song, “Remington.” Cricket first came into the regional spotlight as a Falcon Ridge Folk Festival Emerging Artist and as winners of the FreshGrass Award in 2013.
Cricket’s sophomore album “Tell the Story Right” weaves contemporary sounds and themes around a backbone of American roots music. Featuring seven original songs, two modern covers, and one traditional spiritual, this album won’t disappoint lovers of the tradition, and will leave a number of
modern listeners wondering why they don’t have more bluegrass on their playlists.
Andrea will be joined by Ross Martin (guitar), Dave Speranza (bass), and Doug Goldstein (banjo).
