More About Cricket Blue
The songs of Burlington-based folk duo Cricket Blue are inspired by diverse aspects of the American folk tradition: old and current, popular and obscure. Laura Heaberlin and Taylor Smith write songs marked by close-knit harmonies that range from traditional to boundary-pushing, about indecision, love, myths, and the ends of the things.
Dan Bolles, music editor at Seven Days, lauded their recent self-titled EP and said, “Their vocal blend is immaculate. But more importantly, they appear to share a sensibility and sensitivity — the mark of any great duo.”
