The Honeydew Drops
Were you one of the lucky ticket holders to our sold out Annie and Rod caps show in January? Well if you enjoy Annie, Rod and Jason Dennie's traditional sound make sure you come in March and hear this North Carolina Husband & wife duo, the Honeydew Drops.
This is fresh, homegrown music but deeply rooted in tradition and most importantly it is really good! Anne & Pete Sibley
The musical equivalent to a couple that finishes each other's sentences. Shawn Underwood, Twangville.com Their talent is such that it's quite possible that a new band recording in the year 2020 might cite The Honey Dewdrops as a prime influence. Bluegrass Unlimited Magazine
Laura Wortman and Kagey Parrish make their home in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Charlottesville, Virginia.
The couple has been playing music in some capacity for over 15 years, but honed in on their natural duet abilities 7 years ago when they met for the first time in college. It was their love of folk music that brought them together and has since taken them out on the road to tour fulltime as the award-winning duet they are today.
Writing and singing in the veins of folk, old country music, and bluegrass, the Dewdrops entwine harmony singing with tight instrumentation and craft songs that are simple and fine-tuned. Theirs are new songs from the southern mountains that ring with originality.
After their appearance and first place win on a 2008 talent show broadcast of NPR's "A Prairie Home Companion", the Dewdrops began their careers as songwriters and have since released two critically acclaimed albums, "If the Sun Will Shine" (2009) and "These Old Roots" (2010) both of which have charted at the #1 and #2 positions on the Folk DJ-L Charts for 2010.
The Honey Dewdrops were the 6th most played artist at folk radio in 2010, with a #10 song and two top 30 albums.
"These Old Roots" charted at #1 on the Folk DJ-L charts for October & November 2010.
"These Old Roots" voted #11 in the top 25 CDs of 2010 by the Folk Alley Listener Poll.
