The Honey Dewdrops at the Twisted Branch Tea Bazaar

Posted on November 22, 2011 by


If you’re still in town tonight and looking for a way to beat the rainy day doldrums, head over to the Twisted Branch Tea Bazaar for the sweet folk sounds of the Honey Dewdrops.  This husband-and-wife duo made up of Laura Wortman and Kagey Parrish hails from Charlottesville, VA, and they’ll be playing their last Virginia show of the year before heading south to continue their tour.

The Dewdrops are known for their sincere and timeless interpretation of traditional folk music and for their flawless intertwining harmonies. Says Bluegrass Unlimited Magazine of the two: “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.”  To date, the pair has released two critically-acclaimed studio albums, If the Sun Will Shine (2009) and These Old Roots (2010), and has announced plans to record a third in December of this year.  Their touring has taken them all over the country and won them critical acclaim, their two albums charting at #1 and #2 on the Folk DJ-L Charts for 2010.

Tonight they will be joined by friends Melody Walker and Jacob Groopman.  The show starts at 8, and the cover is $7 at the door.  Having spent the last few weeks finishing up songs for the new record, the Dewdrops will undoubtedly debut a few new songs for those in attendance, so don’t miss your chance to catch a sneak peak of what is to come!
