THE HONEY DEWDROPS' ULTIMATE MUSIC FESTIVAL
WTJU Folk Marathon
Monday, May 1, 2012
2-4 pm (edt)
Coming up on the second day of this year's Folk Fundraiser, Laura Wortman and Kagey Parrish, known collectively as The Honey Dewdrops, will feature good songs made in America, including old and new folk, old-timey, bluegrass, and country music. A good time is guaranteed for all!
Hailing from the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Charlottesville, VA, the Honey Dewdrops are Laura Wortman and Kagey Parrish. Together, writing and singing in the veins of folk and old country music, Laura and Kagey have been touring the country over the past 4 years and have 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 combine a high lonesome duet harmony vocal style with contagious energy, soulful new songs and a fresh angle. The result, with guitars, a banjo and a mandolin, is a sound that welcomes you in like a dear old friend. Warm and honest, the Dewdrops fill up a room with sound and spirit.
