As Locust Honey, Chloe Edmonstone and Meredith Watson bring their
experience in Old-Time, Bluegrass, and Pre-War Blues to both their
original material and the traditional songs and tunes of the American
Southeast.  With a rotating instrumentation of fiddles, open-back and
resonator banjos, acoustic and resonator guitars, they set an emphasis
on lively arrangements that showcase their signature vintage vocal
harmonies.  Joined by John Miller, (The Fox Hunt, The Hackensaw Boys,)
on upright bass, they have been touring the US, UK and Ireland since

Their original song, "When The Whiskey's Gone," was featured in the
2014 film "Time Out of Mind," starring Richard Gere and directed by
Oren Moverman.  Their record "Never Let Me Cross Your Mind" was
released to critical acclaim in 2014 and remained in the top ten on
the Folk DJ Charts for 4 months.

"Ultimately this trio have not only mastered the art of making music
that can be challenging and engrossing with that powerful edginess,
but at the same time it is stunningly beautiful.

"There is a really authentic front porch feel to everything on this

outstanding album."
-Mike Morrison, American Roots UK

"These talented young women have connected to the deep roots of their

music and made it their own. I highly recommend that you make this CD
your own, too for lots of pleasurable listening."
