The Honey Dew Drops will be performing on their Manitoba tour on April 9th, 2013.
Hailing from the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Charlottesville, VA, the Honey Dewdrops are Laura Wortman and Kagey Parrish.
Together, they write songs, sing harmonies; play guitar, mandolin, and banjo; have toured the country for the past 4 years and appeared
on A Prairie Home Companion; gained Folk Radio notoriety with a #1 album and have shared the stage with musical greats such as Carolina Chocolate Drops, Mary Gauthier, and Matt Flinner Trio. The Honey Dewdrops have been making music together since they met in 2003. With two guitars and a shared love of the Beatles, Bill Monroe, Neil Young and Mike Seeger, they began singing their favorite songs together in college with the most pared-down sound. Almost 9 years later, that sound and the songwriting of the Honey Dewdrops has evolved and begun to dig deeper, with new instrumentation and taking influence from American traditional music as well as modern songwriters like Darrell Scott, Iris Dement, Mary Gauthier and David Francey. “We’re inspired by songs that are rooted in the experience and lives of people and songs we can all see ourselves in. We try to write and perform in that spirit,” says Laura. During their 4 years of touring and traveling and playing for audiences across the country, Laura and Kagey have drawn inspiration from the people they meet and places they stay. “Traveling has taken us to communities all over and we meet people at the shows, in restaurants, standing in line at the post office or drug store. Everyone we meet has a story they share and that is inspiring to us,” says Kagey.
