A passerine is a songbird of perching habits. While more than half of all bird species are classified as passerines, Passerine — the Florida folk group playing Friday, July 1 at Cary Street Cafe — isn’t nearly as common in the human world of acoustic melody-making.

The quartet sets itself apart from the Americana flock on its new release, “Harbingers” Tunes such as “Fireworks,” “Waiting for You” and “Snow Drive” are striking examples of the group’s uncluttered intimacy. Wisely avoiding modern McMansion surroundings, Passerine’s hand-woven nest of guitar, violin, bass and dobro emphasizes the group’s harmonious virtues and team-first arrangements and compositions.

Passerine takes the perch at Cary Street Cafe at 10 p.m. Admission is $5. carystreetcafe.com.
