The Honey Dewdrops – Modern American Roots Music

Saturday, January 13, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

$15

Laura Wortman and Kagey Parrish are celebrating their 9th year of touring full time as The Honey Dewdrops, having played stages and festivals far and wide in North America and Europe.  With tight harmonies and an musical ensemble that includes clawhammer banjo,  mandolin and guitars,  the effect is to leave listeners with only what matters:  the heart of the song and clarity over ornamentation.

After leaving their home base of Virginia and living on the road for 2 years, Laura and Kagey now call Baltimore, Maryland home and it’s where they wrote and recorded their fourth full-length album, Tangled Country, released May 2015.  Acoustic Guitar Magazine  describes the set of songs as “a handcrafted sound centered on swarming harmonies and acoustic guitars that churn like a paddlewheel and shimmer like heat waves on the highway.”  And like their stage performance,  these songs rock and reel, and then they console you when you come back down. 


Quotes

“Gorgeous harmonies, thrilling arrangements, and some remarkably insightful, honest writing. ” – SING OUT!

“Handcrafted sound centered on swarming harmonies and acoustic guitars that churn like a paddlewheel and shimmer like heat waves on the highway.”  – ACOUSTIC GUITAR MAGAZINE

“Just one of the highlights from the outstanding Tangled Country, a collection of often sad but still hopeful songs, ‘Same Old’ mines some of the territory of Gillian Welch and David Rawlings, with lilting banjo, gorgeous harmonies and tasteful pedal steel, and exemplifies this duo’s simple yet beautiful music.”                                                  FREDDY JENKINS, FOR NPR MUSIC’S FAVORITE SONGS OF 2015
