The Honey Dewdrops at Old Sloop Presents

April 20 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

$15

Singer-songwriter duo The Honey Dewdrops will return to the Old Sloop Presents performing arts series Saturday, April 20. Erin Ash Sullivan will open the show.

Laura Wortman and Kagey Parrish of The Honey Dewdrops began touring in 2009 and have called the city of Baltimore home since 2014. With five albums and fourteen years of playing shows on the road, they continue to expand their experimental folk sound of electric and acoustic guitars, mandolin, and clawhammer banjo with tight vocal harmonies, while maintaining a commitment to deepening their understanding of the world through the lens of songwriting and music. No Depression says of the new album, Light Behind Light, “The Honey Dewdrops have a way of filling their songs with humanity, using their beautiful playing and harmonies to emphasize what connects us all.”

Erin Ash Sullivan won the 2023 Rose Garden Performing Songwriter Competition, received the Mark Erelli Judge’s Choice Award in the New England Songwriting Competition, and was a finalist in the Great American Song Contest and the Mid-Atlantic Song Contest. WFUV’s John Platt describes Erin as having “a special talent that reminds me of early Dar Williams,” and Victor Infante of the Worcester Telegram & Gazette describes her music as “delicate and evocative” with songs full of “nuance and emotional resonance.”

The performance will take place at 7:30pm in the handicap-accessible Fellowship Hall of the First Congregational Church of Rockport, 12 School St. Advance tickets are $15 for adults and $5 for those age 18 and under. Visit oldslooppresents.org, John Tarr Store in Rockport, or The Bookstore of Gloucester. The suggested contribution at the door is $20 for adults, $5 for those age 18 and under, and $40 for families.
Old Sloop Presents is a nonprofit, all-volunteer project of the First Congregational Church, conceived to thank the community for its support of the historic Sandy Bay meetinghouse. The program presents a variety of performing arts at affordable prices in a welcoming, informal, and alcohol-free environment. Delicious homemade desserts, donated by parishioners and friends of the Old Sloop, are available for sale, as are fair trade coffee and tea and other beverages.
