Texas duo Penny and Sparrow are really Andy Baxter and Kyle Jahnke. The two former roommates started the group after being influenced by such bands like the Swell Season, Bon Iver, and Mumford & Sons. They rely heavily on folk for most of their sound, but traces of country, bluegrass, and blues trickle in from time to time. There are no gimmicks: Their sound is fresh, clean, and focused on the melodies and lyrics. Penny and Sparrow’s latest album, Struggle Party, was released independently and made No. 2 on the iTunes chart and landed on Billboard’s Top 50. For a night of relaxing, beautiful music, this is the show. Nashville-based singer Corey Kilgannon is opening.
