“Just one of the highlights from an outstanding album, the song ‘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!” (NPR).

“A handcrafted sound centred on swarming harmonies and acoustic guitars that churn like a paddlewheel and shimmer like heat waves on the highway!” (Acoustic Guitar Magazine)
Outstanding Americana/roots duo The Honey Dewdrops hail from Virginia and are based in Baltimore. With gorgeous vocal harmonies and a versatile musical set-up that includes clawhammer banjo, mandolin, harmonica and guitars, Laura Wortman and Kagey Parrish treat listeners to a raft of memorable, beautifully performed songs.
They have been touring full time for almost 10 years now, performing throughout North America and making their first European foray in late 2016 on Germany’s Bluegrass Jamboree tour. They arrive on this side of the Atlantic in January for their debut tour of the UK.
“Brilliant, fluid guitar work from Kagey Parrish…as smooth as butter….and equally important the vocals of Laura Wortman, one of the most beautiful and authentic voices in Americana music today…a direct line from her heart to her vocal chords!” (FolkWorks USA).
Known on the American roots music scene for top-notch songwriting, and undeniably steeped in old-time music, bluegrass and country, The Honey Dewdrops manage to encompass both traditional and modern in their sound.
“Incredible musical chemistry that transcends their individual talents to create something truly unique!” (FolkWorks USA).
They often draw comparisons with Gillian Welch & David Rawlings, and while that contains a kernel of truth (gorgeously intricate duo performance, spot-on vocal harmonies), Laura and Kagey (pronounced Keggy), have their own authentic, original sound and musical identity. The Honey Dewdrops released their fourth full-length album, the acclaimed Tangled Country, in 2015, and are currently working on the follow-up, due for release in 2019.
“Like their stage performance, these songs rock and reel, and then console you when you come back down! (No Depression)
