The Honey Dewdrops

More

Virginia natives Laura Wortman and Kagey Parrish are the Honey Dewdrops. Writing and singing in the veins of folk and old country music, the Honey 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.

“We travel through a  lot of mountains,” Wortman explains, and the environmental effects in the area inspire the song “Hills of My Home”. Or, skip to 43:16 for their very cool rendition of “Across the Universe”.
