The Honey Dewdrops
Saturday 2nd February 2019
The Carlile Institute, Meltham
A completely sold-out hall for our first gig of 2019 – and what a gig it was! A very special evening of exquisite music from the Dewdrops.
Known on the American roots music scene for their top-notch songwriting, The Honey Dewdrops treat listeners to a raft of memorable, beautifully performed songs, with gorgeous vocal harmonies and a versatile musical set-up that includes clawhammer banjo, mandolin, harmonica and acoustic guitars. Although undeniably steeped in bluegrass and old-time country, The Honey Dewdrops encompass both traditional and modern in their sound. Hailing from Virginia, Laura Wortman and Kagey (pronounced keggy) Parrish are now based in Baltimore and have been touring full time for almost ten years. Early 2019 will see The Honey Dewdrops embark on their first UK tour, including their debut appearance at the prestigious Celtic Connections festival in Glasgow. We first heard of The Honey Dewdrops via the fantastic band Front Country, who cover one of the duo’s songs and are old friends of theirs. When we finally saw the Dewdrops in concert they were just as marvellous as expected, and we can’t wait to bring them to Meltham for a gig at The Carlile Institute.
