The Honey Dewdrops— Laura Wortman & Kagey Parrish— have long felt the push and pull between their original roots in the Appalachian mountains of Virginia and their current home in Baltimore, Maryland. It is in the sound of their harmony-soaked songs, blended with the tones of guitar, banjo, and mandolin and also in the group's songwriting, which reflects the beautiful and hard realities of today.
The Honey Dewdrops have toured internationally since 2009, on stages as diverse as A Prairie Home Companion, Celtic Connections (Scotland) and the Bluegrass Jamboree (Germany). “Gorgeous harmonies, thrilling arrangements, and some remarkably insightful, honest writing.” —Sing Out! magazine

Somewhere tonight, across the country or across the sea, a singer, sitting on a stool on a pub’s corner stage, is belting out a Kevin McKrell song, and the crowd is singing along. McKrell pioneered American Celtic music beginning in 1979 with Donnybrook Fair. Several bands later, in 1998, McKrell formed a powerhouse band under his own name, merging the Irish sensibility of Donnybrook with a steely, world class bluegrass edge. The McKrells toured harder than Donnybrook, bringing its music, with McKrell’s lusty vocals supported by hot string band picking, to Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center and Folk, Irish and Bluegrass festivals and concert venues around the country.
The 5-member band is Kevin McKrell - guitar, joined by: Frank Orsini on fiddle, violin, viola and mandolin whose repertoire spans Elizabethan, Celtic, Bluegrass, Country and Blues as well as dance tunes from England, New England, Canada, Appalachia, American swing and Cajun; Scott Hopkins on Banjo with music degrees from the University of Connecticut and the Crane School of Music, winning the Crane Concerto Competition on tuba; Brian Melick on Percussion who is single-handedly capable of lifting a good band to the 'great' level and Arlin Greene on Bass who has toured the world with The McKrells and other notable bands including Bill Keith, Dan Tyminski, James "D Train” Williams, Bolton, Big Medicine.

Stunningly powerful vocal harmony floods the room as the four Windborne singers— Lynn & Will Rowan, Lauren Breunig, and Jeremy Carter-Gordon— share a vibrant energy onstage – their connection to each other and to the music clearly evident.
Windborne has collected and studied polyphonic vocal music for over 15 years. The group is able to shift to radically different genres like no band you have ever heard— as comfortable with an improvised Corsican couplet song, as with an English ballad.
"Some of the finest singers of protest and folk music that I have ever heard… One of the Best Albums of 2017! “ ~SingOut! Radio Magazine
