The High and Wides
The High & Wides project a big, driving sound—musical traditions re-imagined for a new century. With roots in urban Baltimore and the rural Delmarva peninsula, they draw on bluegrass backgrounds and weave in influences from new wave to old time to make music that defies boundaries while evoking the era when country, bluegrass, western swing, and early rock’n’roll mingled freely.
They have three albums: 2018’s “Lifted” (named for the gear theft that forced the band to re-record the completed album from scratch) and 2019’s “Seven True Stories” feature the band’s strong songwriting and arranging, and 2022’s “Blood: Family Harmony Classics” highlights their roots with covers of songs by groups such as the Kershaw Brothers, Maddox Brothers & Rose, and the Carter Family.

The Honey Dewdrops
Virginia raised and Maryland based, Laura Wortman and Kagey Parrish of The Honey Dewdrops began touring in 2009 and have called the city of Baltimore home since 2014. With several albums and fourteen years of playing shows on the road, Laura and Kagey continue to expand their experimental folk sound with electric guitar, clawhammer banjo, mandolin and tight harmonies, while maintaining a commitment to deepening their understanding of the world through the lens of music and songwriting. No Depression says of their latest 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.”
