Modern-folk and husband/wife duo Naomi Sparrow and Rob Stroup will bring their act, Moody Little Sister, to play road-inspired music at 8 p.m. Saturday, June 30, at Open Space for Arts & Community. The duo’s 2015 debut album, Wild Places, was produced by folk-rock icon and islander Pete Droge. In recent years, Sparrow and Stroup have traveled in their van (along with a big fluffy dog named Triton), playing gigs everywhere between Anchorage and Albuquerque.

A press release described their music as “New Folk of the American West that captures dust storms and tsunamis of the heart.”

The release went on to compare Sparrow’s voice with folk-pop darlings Patti Griffin and Anais Mitchell, and said Stroup “takes the road-worn, rootsy approach of John Moreland, Jason Isbell and early Ryan Adams.”

Tickets to the show, $20, are available at
