The Honey Dewdrops Visit Brentwood Arts Exchange, November 20th

The Honey Dewdrops visit Brentwood Arts Exchange, November 20th

From our friends at the Honey Dewdrops...

Fresh off a two month coast to coast tour supporting their new record, Tangled Country, the Honey Dewdrops will finish their Fall tour by performing on Friday, November 20th for a show at the Brentwood Arts Exchange.

2015 has been a banner year for the Honey Dewdrops, whose Laura Wortman (vocals, guitar, banjo) is a Charlottesville area native. This year the duo performed at Merlefest, released their critically acclaimed fourth studio record, signed with the independent label Randm Records, and played stages across the US and Canada.

The sound and the musical compatibility that The Honey Dewdrops possess is unmistakeable. On Tangled Country, released May 2015, each share vocals and guitars, augmented by Parrish’s mandolin and Wortman’s work on banjo and harmonica. "I think it comes from spending a lot of time together and knowing the inner workings of each other creatively," says Wortman. And while comparisons to the music of Gillian Welch & David Rawlings are inevitable here, that’s because there's something to this marriage of matrimony and music. Wortman and Parrish's musical chemistry is so vivid here in recorded form that it's not surprising to learn that their live performances are often described as "mesmerizing," "evocative," and “genuine." The culmination of three years of writing and arranging, Tangled Country captures and communicates this as the duo weave dynamics and harmonies from one track to another, proving that The Honey Dewdrops bear the mark of musical maturity - in performance, arrangement, and songwriting.
