International Folk Music Awards 2017 Artist of the Year Ordinary Elephant captivates listeners with their well-honed combination of insightful writing, effortless harmonies and intertwined clawhammer banjo and guitar. The collaboration of husband and wife, their connection, and their influences (such as Gillian Welch, Guy Clark, Anais Mitchell) all meet on stage. You see it, hear it, and then you find yourself truly feeling it. “As genuine as it gets” says legendary Texas producer Lloyd Maines.

Crystal and Pete Damore have been performing together since 2011, when they called Texas home. The two took to full-time nomadic life with their dogs in 2014, and are still finding home and music wherever they go. The duo was both a Kerrville New Folk Finalist and Falcon Ridge Emerging Artist in 2017, and their release ‘Before I Go’ was No. 7 on the Folk DJ Chart for the year.

Laura Wortman and Kagey Parrish are celebrating their 9th year of touring full time as The Honey Dewdrops, having played stages and festivals far and wide in North America and Europe.  With tight harmonies and an musical ensemble that includes clawhammer banjo,  mandolin and guitars,  the effect is to leave listeners with only what matters:  the heart of the song and clarity over ornamentation.

After leaving their home base of Virginia and living on the road for 2 years, Laura and Kagey now call Baltimore, Maryland home and it’s where they wrote and recorded their fourth full-length album, Tangled Country, released May 2015.  Acoustic Guitar Magazine  describes the set of songs as “a handcrafted sound centered on swarming harmonies and acoustic guitars that churn like a paddlewheel and shimmer like heat waves on the highway.”  And like their stage performance,  these songs rock and reel, and then they console you when you come back down.

The Honey Dewdrops have a busy year ahead of them with festival appearances across the country and a new record on the horizon (slated for release Spring of 2019) along with their first UK tour in Jan/Feb 2019.
