VERO BEACH - Indie Pop Rock duo Sirsy returns to Sebastian Inlet State Park Sat., Feb. 9, for a free two hour concert.

Sirsy has played the park several times before, to increasingly larger crowds. The hard-traveling duo from Albany, New York performs about 250 live shows every year. Their online schedule lists about five shows per week from now through June, from New York to California and all points in between.

Sirsy is vocalist Melanie Krahmer and guitarist Rich Libutti. They have eight CDs of original music with a big, full sound that is surprising coming from just two people. In addition to singing, Mel Krahmer plays a full drum kit while standing up. Ms. Krahmer also plays the flute and bass via a keyboard mounted on her drums.

At most of their shows Sirsy is the headliner, though they’ve also opened for Maroon 5, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, Train, Third Eye Blind, Collective Soul, Blues Traveler, and Cheap Trick.

Sebastian Inlet State Park has multiple entrances. From Vero Beach, enter the park at 14251 North A1A, Vero Beach. If coming from further north, you can enter the park at 9700 South A1A, Melbourne Beach. The concert will take place at the pavilions on Coconut Point, located on the south side of Sebastian Inlet.

The Feb. 9 concert is free with regular park entry fees. The show will start at 7 p.m. and end around 9 p.m., and is sponsored by the Florida Dept. of Environmental Protection and the Friends of Sebastian Inlet State Park.
