The Honey Dewdrops with Sorcha & Jo
During the cold Maine winter of 2009, jazz-infused harmonies met bluegrass roots in Jo's small kitchen. Two years later they hit the road with their spot-on vocal harmonies and groove driven, genre bending arrangements of Sorcha's songs and select covers. Their live performances are honest, lively and moving from the 2012 Falcon Ridge Folk Festival Emerging Artist showcase to Club Passim to weddings.
Jo rolls her classical cello background into funky bluegrass chops a-la Crooked Still and Ben Sollee, supporting Sorcha's songwriting and banjo/guitar playing is steeped in jazz, folk and blues, with influences ranging from Nina Simone to Tom Waits.
The Honey Dewdrops are the Virginia-based roots duet of Laura Wortman and Kagey Parrish. With a blend of new Americana and traditional folk music, they create inspired songs that are rooted in the experience and lives of people. Their sound is transcendent; they write all their own songs and yet no one could ever peg them as just another singer-songwriter couple, not when they've embedded a sparse Appalachian clarity on every track that is accessible to listeners everywhere. The songs they write shine with energy and emotion through intimate performances with a handful of acoustic instruments and tightly layered harmonies.
