The Honey Dewdrops
www.thehoneydewdrops.com
Suggested donation is $20

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

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.

"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

grandeur honed to perfection with a razor-sharp edginess... One can easily imagine
viewing the tales of these tunes through a film director's editing machine. ”
