Don’t miss a night of beautiful harmonies and Americana music by the Honey Dewdrops & Zoe and Cloyd!

Laura Wortman and Kagey Parrish share more than most couples. As the Honey Dewdrops, they share stages from venues to festivals across North America, stretches of rolling, infinite roadway, and a lot of songs. With tight harmonies and a 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.

Award winning songwriters and multi-instrumentalists, Zoe & Cloyd perform a mix of original and traditional material on fiddle, banjo, guitar and mandolin featuring lovely vocal harmonies and timeless melodies.

Zoe & Cloyd spring from deep roots in American music. Founding members of the acclaimed Americana trio, Red June and long-time veterans of the Asheville, NC music scene, Natalya Zoe Weinstein and John Cloyd Miller shifted gears to their duet project after the birth of their daughter in early 2015. Their debut recording, Equinox, released in April 2015, features original and traditional repertoire spanning bluegrass, old-time and folk and showcases the elegant simplicity of two instruments and two voices. The album met with high acclaim in publications such as No Depression and Bluegrass Unlimited, among others. Their banner year continued with a 1st place win at the Duo Contest at the prestigious FreshGrass Festival in North Adams, Massachusetts.

More About the Honey Dewdrops:

“The Dewdrops have something unique and oftimes mesmerizing recommending them in their plaintive harmonies, easygoing rhythms, evocative arrangements, well-crafted original songs, and a genuine approach…”— David McGee, The Bluegrass Special

After a year and a half of living on the road and 8+ years of touring under their belts, Laura and Kagey now call Baltimore home and it’s where they wrote and recorded their fourth full-length album, Tangled Country, released May 2015 on Random Records. 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 new songs rock and reel, and then they console you when you come back down.

The Honey Dewdrops have shared the stage with many Folk and Americana greats such as Bela Fleck & Abigail Washburn, the Carolina Chocolate Drops, Chatham County Line, David Wax Museum, Eddie From Ohio, Loudon Wainwright III, Sierra Hull, Matt Flinner Trio, Mary Gauthier, Mandolin Orange, Kathy Mattea, Anais Mitchell, The SteelDrivers, The Steel Wheels and The Stray Birds.

More About Zoe & Cloyd:
John Cloyd Miller‘s foundation in traditional bluegrass and old-time Appalachian music coupled with his modern sensibility combine to make him a natural musician and performer. John is a twelfth generation North Carolina native and the grandson of pioneering bluegrass fiddler Jim Shumate. He is well known for his haunting mountain voice as well as his instrumental prowess and award-winning songwriting. John is a 1st place winner of the prestigious Chris Austin Songwriting Contest and a recipient of an Artist Fellowship for songwriting by the North Carolina Arts Council.

Natalya Zoe Weinstein also comes from a musical family: her father is master jazz pianist and her grandfather was a professional klezmer musician. She is an accomplished fiddler in a variety of styles as well as an inspiring singer and songwriter. While trained classically in her home state of Massachusetts, Natalya spent many years fine-tuning her bluegrass and old-time fiddling with some of the country’s top traditional musicians. Now a mentor to many young players, she is a sought-after instructor and in high demand as a teacher and session musician.
