On Friday, September 16 at 8:00 PM, The Honey Dewdrops will take the stage at Flushing Town Hall to share their vibrant and forward-thinking style of folk music.

For over a decade this singer-songwriter duo has traveled around the country performing their experimental take on folk music.

Laura Wortman and Kagey Parrish began touring as The Honey Dewdrops in 2009. This year they have released their seventh record, Light Behind Light, featuring their original sound, which combines traditional folk elements with a modern, acoustic style.

No Depression, the quarterly roots music journal, says the duo "prove that the magic of their artistry is in their ability to impart a sense of compassion in listeners while delivering meaningful messages with a purity that’s so rare to encounter." Baltimore Magazine describes their music as as “sweet to the ears, easy on the heart.”

Virginia-raised and Maryland-based, Wortman and Parrish have called the city of Baltimore home since 2014. With several albums and thirteen years of playing shows on the road, Laura and Kagey are excited to make Flushing, Queens their next stop.

“I can’t think of a better way to welcome the fall season than with this duo’s gorgeous, melodic music. Audiences will love the sounds of their acoustic guitars and the lilting harmonies of their voices in song,” says Ellen Kodadek, Executive & Artistic Director of Flushing Town Hall. “We showcase a lot of global artists from around the world at Flushing Town Hall. This concert is a unique opportunity to enjoy a slice of Americana.”

The performance begins on Friday, Sept. 16 at 8 PM. A Harmony Singing workshop (FREE with concert tickets) will take place at 7 PM. In-Person Tickets: $18/$12 Members, Seniors, Students  Tickets can be purchased here.

This concert is supported in part by Mid-Atlantic Tours of the Mid-Atlantic Arts Foundation.
