Exquisite folk/Americana from Baltimore
Now booking for early September 2019
With gorgeous vocal harmonies and a versatile musical set-up that includes clawhammer banjo, acoustic guitars, mandolin and occasional harmonica, The Honey Dewdrops treat listeners to a raft of memorable, beautifully performed songs, blending folk and acoustic Americana with a hint of bluegrass. Hailing from Virginia, Laura Wortman and Kagey Parrish settled in Baltimore in 2014 after a long stretch of living on the road. The Honey Dewdrops have released five albums to date, including their latest release Anyone Can See which just came out in March 2019. Both their recordings and live performances have received glowing reviews, often described as “mesmerising” and “evocative”.
“Across five albums, The Honey Dewdrops have honed their harmonies, crafting a sound that’s both sweet and strong, atop instrumental lines that pull from old-time and folk traditions to make timeless-sounding music for a modern world.” -No Depression magazine
Although undeniably steeped in folk, bluegrass and old-time country music, The Honey Dewdrops manage to exquisitely encompass both traditional and modern in their unique sound. The duo has been touring full time for almost 10 years, performing at festivals and venues throughout North America. They made their first warmly received visit to the UK in Jan/Feb 2019, including their Celtic Connections festival debut. The Honey Dewdrops return to this side of the Pond for the Appalachian and Bluegrass festival in Northern Ireland at the end of August, and we’re booking a week of early September dates for them in the rest of the UK.
