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 2012.
Locust Honey is featured as one of Merlefest’s “Must See Fresh Faces” of this year’s festival, alongside Sierra Hull, Chris Jones, and Front Country.
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 inthe top ten onthe Folk DJ Charts for 4 months.
