Following her two AMA Awards for 2015’s Blackbirds, Gretchen Peters’s 2018 album Dancing With the Beast marked another career high. Blending shades of country-rock, indie-folk and Southern gothic with Peters’s smokily honeyed voice, it features all-female characters, from pre-teen to elderly, whose stories vividly illuminate both the personal and political. Reprising her headlining set at the 2018 Southern Fried Festival, Gretchen will be joined by her band, led by long-time musical partner Barry Walsh, and the Southern Fried String Quartet, led by Patsy Reid.  “Astonishingly good writing. . . Peters is at the very top of her game” (PopMatters)

Frequently compared to Gillian Welch and David Rawlings, The Honey Dewdrops  -Baltimore-based spouses Laura Wortman and Kagey Parrish - distil traditional blues, spirituals and Appalachian sounds into potent original songwriting, adorning lustrous close harmonies with banjo, mandolin and guitars.
