Review for The Honey Dewdrops:

Laura Wortman and Kagey Parrish are the Honey Dewdrops: an award winning, nationally touring husband and wife folk duet who perform fresh, original songs focusing on vocal harmonies and tight instrumentation. Influenced by traditional Appalachian music as well as contemporary singer-songwriters, the Honey Dewdrops blend old styles with new, creating music that is powerful and heartfelt. 

Their down-to-earth, real-life approach to music brought them to high pro?le stages, such as A Prairie Home Companion and Floyd Fest; gained Folk Radio notoriety with two #1 albums (If The Sun Will Shine- 2009 & These Old Roots- 2010); and enabled them to share the stage with musical greats such as Carolina Chocolate Drops, Mary Gauthier, and the Matt Flinner Trio.

Brian Ashley Jones is a versatile Americana singer and songwriter with a variety of influences... rock, blues, country, and bluegrass. Based in Nashville Jones averages 225 live shows a year. His original compositions have been placed in films and television and recorded by a variety of other performing artists.
