The Honey Dewdrops

Exquisite harmonies, excellent musicianship and fine songwriting from this Baltimore folk/Americana duo

We will be welcoming The Honey Dewdrops to our Folk Night on 19 May.  

They are an absolutely exceptional duo. This tour will be their second of the UK after their debut in early 2019 which included Celtic Connections. They have acoustic guitars, clawhammer banjo, some mandolin. The Honey Dewdrops blend folk, acoustic Americana and a dash of bluegrass, enchanting audiences with their memorable and exquisitely performed songs. They’re from Virginia but live in Baltimore now. 

Check them out here:
