<Dear Friends, we are sad to say that we will no longer be presenting music at The Sarah Lawrence Center For The Urban River at Beczak. After many years and many great shows, we were unable to come to terms that would enable us to offer inclusive, affordable, community focused programming by the river. Instead, we invite you to join us for a series of intimate Urban H2O @ Home concerts in the Park Hill neighborhood of Yonkers and some bigger, more rocking’ shows at the tasting room of our long time series sponsor, The Captain Lawrence Brewing Company. See our upcoming show schedule for details or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.> Next up…

Cricket Tell The Weather – Original Songs With Deep Bluegrass Roots
Cricket Tell the Weather is a Brooklyn based string band with its roots deep in the bluegrass tradition, embracing folk, Appalachian old-time, and spirituals as a backdrop for their original songwriting. Winners of the 2013 FreshGrass Award, Cricket has toured the Northeast, establishing a base throughout the bluegrass and folk festival and concert series circuits. Bringing with them heart, enthusiasm, humor, and an appreciation of tradition, Cricket’s voice is personal in a way that stretches against categories, and familiar in a way that honors those who have come before.
[Cricket Tell the Weather] is an acoustic quartet that draws inspiration from a handful of sepia-toned styles, but plays original songs aiming to showcase a contemporary voice… Though the players’ instrumental chops are in evidence, Cricket’s self-titled debut LP, released last year, is very much a song-based affair. The child of an Italian-American and an Indonesian immigrant, [fiddler and songwriter Andrea] Asprelli makes no claims to austere authenticity beyond the honesty of her own creative voice. But her contemporary spin on inherited forms is very much part of the American musical tradition.” – Jeremy Goodwin, The Boston Globe
