The Honey Dewdrops

The Honey Dewdrops

Artist Overview

Laura Wortman and Kagey Parrish share more than most couples. As the Honey Dewdrops, they share stages from venues to festivals across the world and a lot of songs. With a focus on harmony singing and a musical ensemble that includes clawhammer banjo, mandolin and guitars, Wortman & Parrish’s original compositions tell stories that engage and resonate in a delicately creative way, blurring the line between narrative and prose. The closeness of sound and the musical compatibility that The Honey Dewdrops possess is unmistakable.

Since 2009, Wortman & Parrish have toured full time and released four full-length albums. The latest, Tangled Country, was released May 2015 on Random Records and was featured on NPR as well ranking on the folk dj / roots music report. 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 new songs rock and reel, and then they console you when you come back down.
