Virginia born, Baltimore based duo, The Honey Dewdrops, sing and play their own brand of ‘Tangled Country’- paying homage to the clarity of song over ornamentation. Deep rooted harmonies paired with acoustic guitars, clawhammer banjo and mandolin leave listeners with an evocative live performance that is described as “thrilling” and “gorgeous” by Sing Out! Magazine.

The Honey Dewdrops


Laura Wortman and Kagey Parrish, The Honey Dewdrops, are celebrating their 9th year of touring full time, having played stages and festivals far and wide in North America and Europe. With tight harmonies and an musical ensemble that includes clawhammer banjo, mandolin and guitars, the effect is to leave listeners with only what matters: the heart of the song and clarity over ornamentation.

After leaving their home base of Charlottesville, Va and living on the road for 2 years, Laura and Kagey now call Baltmore home and it’s where they wrote and recorded their fourth full-length album, “Tangled Country,” released May 2015. 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 songs rock and reel, and then they console you when you come back down.
