Back in town after their 15-state tour (17 shows in 45 days), The Honey Dewdrops, Laura Wortman and Kagey Parrish, will appear in the Hamner Theater’s Cabaret series on Saturday, Aug. 29.
Laura Wortman and Kagey Parrish have been making music for six years. They play original and American traditional songs focusing on vocal harmonies and tight instrumentation.

On Aug. 28, they will appear in support of Jim Waive & the Young Divorcees at Charlottesville’s Fridays After Five. Their performance will feature songs from their debut record, If the Sun Will Shine, which was released in May, 2009.
