Great news! We recently landed a slot at the Homegrown festival in Feb 2014. We are also opening for Trinity Roots in Waitangi park at the The New Year’s Day picnic, see you there!
It's been a busy year for Eb & Sparrow. We opened for Rodriguez, the Sugarman himself, at the TSB Arena - Wellington followed by an opening slot for Anika Moa's Church Tour in Carterton. We recorded our debut album at The Sitting Room in Lyttelton and played to a full house at the Wunderbar. We then opened for Beth Orton, known for her folktronica sound, on her New Zealand Tour.
Help us get a chance to play the WOMAD festival by voting here.
Thanks to everyone for their support, we so appreciate it!
With Love From Eb & Sparrow xxxooo

Here's a great write up from the Wairarapa Times Age.
"Eb & Sparrow are one of the more impressive acts I have seen at the WBS for quite some time. The group were entirely un-amplified, using the full acoustics of the venue to its true potential. Adding to this were the very tasteful, respectful and solid rhythm section - Eb & Sparrow rocked… It would be fitting for Eb & Sparrow to feature at one of NZ's major Folk Festivals.” Andrew Bicknell - President, Wellington Bluegrass Society.
“Another impressive act new to me was Miss Ebony Lamb from Wellington who opened for Delaney (Davidson)and Marlon (Williams) at Aratoi. A singer-songwriter in the Gillian Welch mould, she presented an impressive original set.” Karl du Fresne - Freelance Journalist, Thursday 30th August 2012.
