The Honey Dewdrops & Annalivia
The Honey Dewdrops are the Virginia-based roots duet of Laura Wortman and Kagey Parrish. With a blend of new Americana and traditional folk music, they create inspired songs that are rooted in the experience and lives of people. Their sound is transcendent; they write all their own songs and they’ve embedded a sparse Appalachian clarity on every track that is accessible to listeners everywhere. The songs they write shine with energy and emotion through intimate performances with a handful of acoustic instruments and tightly layered harmonies.
Annalivia is an American ‘roots and branches’ string-band which draws from tradition and today to create their own brand of new acoustic folk music. The members of Annalivia – Liz Simmons, Flynn Cohen, and newest member Bronwyn Keith-Hynes – are all masterful players and have long histories with traditional music, ranging from bluegrass to Irish, Scottish, and Old Time Appalachian music. Their interpretations of their material can range from an inventive, quirky original fiddle tune to an innovative arrangement of a traditional song.
