The Honey Dewdrops, an award winning, nationally touring husband and wife folk duet, will be featured Wednesday, April 6, at the White Gull Inn. Tickets for the 8 PM concert, the seventh and final concert of the season at the Fish Creek inn, are $15. The Dewdrops, Laura Wortman and Kagey Parrish, perform original songs focusing on vocal harmonies and tight instrumentation. Influenced by traditional Appalachian music as well as contemporary singer-songwriters, the Dewdrops blend old styles with new and accompanying themselves on guitar, banjo and mandolin.
If the Sun Will Shine, their debut record, was released in 2009 to critical acclaim and was #2 for two consecutive months on Folk DJ Radio in 2010. The album is a collection of songs written over the past two years, capturing “something haunting, melancholic and all-together charming, according to Jeff Royer of Fly Magazine. Their second album, These Old Roots, is also a tribute to the way music was recorded before overdubs and tracking. It was the #1 rated album on the Folk DJ Charts for October and November 2010. The Dewdrops gained national recognition with award winning performances of NPR’s A Prairie Home Companion in 2008 and were finalists in Mountain Stage’s New Song Contest in 2009.
An optional pre-concert fixed price dinner will served at 6 PM. The menu consists of Panko Crusted Chicken with Fettuccine, charred tomatoes and roast garlic cream; herbed parmesan Focaccia, spinach salad with gorgonzola, seasoned croutons and warmed cider bacon vinaigrette. Key lime cheesecake will be served for dessert.
