Locust Honey’s CD Release Show with Jordan Tice opening
June 20 @ 9:00 pm |
Opening act Jordan Tice
Nashville-based guitarist Jordan Tice is quickly becoming regarded as one of the most exciting young artists on the American roots music scene. He has worked as a sideman to legendary performers like guitarist Dave Rawlings, banjo player Tony Trischka, and comedian Steve Martin, as well as released four solo albums of original music to critical acclaim. His latest release, “Horse County”, features his singing and songwriting in addition to his established instrumental-writing and guitar-picking skills with a sound that calls to mind the music of Roger Miller, John Hartford, and Norman Blake. In addition to his solo work and work as a sideman he is also a part of the instrumental supergroup, Hawktail, which features members of Punch Brothers and Crooked Still. He has toured the US, Europe, and Australia and has been featured on Live from Here (formerly Prairie Home Companion) as well as at festivals like the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, the Grey Fox Bluegrass festival and the Strawberry Music Festival.
And the main event…
As Locust Honey, Chloe Edmonstone and Meredith Watson have spent nearly a decade weaving their experience in old time, bluegrass, and pre-war blues into the core of their sound. Their original songs, as well as their take on traditional tunes, ride on lively arrangements, close vocal harmony, fiddle, guitar, and banjo. With the release of their 3rd album, The Low and Low, Locust Honey has taken a leap into new territory, integrating drums, electric guitars, and even organ into the mix, exploring new sonic worlds and darker lyrical themes.
“The Low and Low” was recorded at the Bomb Shelter here in Nashville, TN. For this exciting album release event at the Station Inn, Locust Honey plans to bring up several of the special guests who recorded on the album, including Robbie Turner, Matt Combs, and more!
Locust Honey has been touring extensively across the US, as well as the UK and Ireland, since 2012. After forming the band in the mountains of North Carolina, Chloe and Meredith relocated to Nashville in 2015, a new home base from which they continue to tour and write. Since relocating, Meredith has opened the Nashville School of Traditional Country Music, dedicated to preserving country music and dance traditions through inclusive learning for all ages. Chloe teaches fiddle at the country school and plays with a variety of bands and songwriters.
Their songs “When the Whiskey’s Gone” and “Blue” were featured in the films “Time Out of Mind” (2014) and “The Dinner” (2016) respectively, both directed by Oren Moverman.
