Crowes Pasture’s ‘Don’t Blink’ Urges Us To Appreciate Those We Love

Partners Monique Byrne and Andy Rogovin were married with kids before they ever sang together, but they now perform as the duo Crowes Pasture with his guitar and her clawhammer banjo and have released two EPs and three albums. On September 1st, 2023, they’ll release their fourth full album, Don’t Blink. They will support the release with a series of late-summer and Fall performances in New England and Florida starting on Aug. 10th, 2023.  

The couple, who met while practicing corporate law, use the album to “touch on the value of relationships — and appreciating those we love while we can”. This includes a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “If I Should Fall Behind.” The album contains one other cover, “The Night We Met,” written by Ben Schneider of Lord Huron.

To further enhance the new songs, Crowes Pasture and co-Producer/multi-instrumentalist Eric M Lichter invited a pair of guest fiddlers to contribute on tracks recorded at Dirt Floor Recording Studio, in Haddam, Connecticut. A bonus track, “Take Back the Red, White and Blue,” was recorded with co-Producer Neale Eckstein at Fox Run Studios in Sudbury, Massachusetts. It features Robin Batteau of Buskin & Batteau on fiddle, and Eckstein on bass

Named after a salt marsh on Cape Cod, Crowes Pasture is “inspired by the tidal cycles of rebirth and rejuvenation.”
