About Sparrow Blue

Acoustic roots songwriting duo Sparrow Blue from Massachusetts released their first full length album Rabbit in the Moon in 2018, featuring fiddle, guitars, mandolin, banjo, harmonica and vocal harmony throughout. Rabbit in the Moon blends folk, country, bluegrass and old-time influences together with crafted songwriting to paint a musical picture of times gone by, hope, hard times, and new beginnings.

Rabbit in the Moon, which was self-produced and independently released, culminates two years of songwriting and represents the duo’s strongest work to date. Rabbit in the Moon reached #1 on the Roots Music Report (RMR) and #8 on the Folk DJ Album Charts in 2018.

Sparrow Blue (Katy Boc and Todd Nickerson) met in 2014 and began writing songs together after discovering a mutual love for American roots music. Since then, they released an EP in 2015 – Mabel, which was called “lilting, dark, and spellbindingly catchy”, released Rabbit in the Moon in 2018, got hitched in the backyard, parented as many kids as you have fingers on your right hand, and featured at folk venues, concert halls, listening rooms, and house concerts throughout New England and beyond.

When not performing, making a living, or spending time with their family, they volunteer at the South Shore Folk Music Club, with the mission of keeping folk music alive and well on the south shore of Massachusetts.

The Open Road Coffeehouse is supported through a grant from the Mass Cultural Council. Please thank your elected officials for supporting the arts!

Open Mic Set

If you are a singer, musician, poet, comedian, or just have a good story to share, sign up for our open mic set when you come in. We have a mic and amp available, but musicians must be able to carry their own instruments on and off the stage. Open mic participants may not use the band's equipment. We will invite participants to come up in order of signup and perform one piece. If time allows, we may invite everyone to come up for a second.
