The Honey Dewdrops in Portsmouth


Now celebrating their ninth year of touring, The Honey Dewdrops are a tight-knit Americana duo - married in life and music. Often drawing comparisons to the folk music institution that is Gillian Welch and David Rawlings, the closeness of sound and the musical compatibility that Virginia-natives Laura Wortman and Kagey Parrish possess is unmistakable. Each share vocals and guitars, augmented by Parrish's mandolin and Wortman's work on banjo and harmonica. The effect is to leave listeners with only what matters: the heart of the song and clarity over ornamentation.
