International ambassadors of Appalachian music, The Local Honeys deep love for and understanding of all things ‘hillbilly’ shine gloriously through their songwriting and performances.
Comprised of Kentucky born and raised Linda Jean Stokley and Montana Hobbs, The Local Honeys have dedicated themselves both to the preservation of the old tunes and the creation of the new. Live onstage they enthral audiences with their ability to tear into hard driving fiddle tunes, sing the high lonesome sound, and weave a damn fine story.
We are delighted that this exceptionally talented duo has agreed to join us this summer and bring some bluegrass magic to our Acorn Stage.
