Honeysuckle is a progressive folk act that blends older influences and traditional instrumentation with modern effects and inspiration. Comprised of Berklee-trained musicians Holly McGarry, Benjamin Burns, and Chris Bloniarz, the trio can frequently be found performing in the Boston area and surrounding cities in the Northeast, playing alongside bands like Drive-By Truckers, The Ballroom Thieves, Boy & Bear, Sam Moss, The Western Den, The Novel Ideas, Shook Twins, John Craigie, Grey Season, Damn Tall Buildings, and most recently David Grisman.
The group was chosen as a Converse Rubber Tracks artist. They've been nominated for Boston Music Awards in the categories Best Americana and Best Folk Artist, and also for Americana/Roots Act Of The Year and Album Of The Year for Red Line Roots' 2016 Big Reds. They have hit the road hard following their October 2017 release, “Catacombs.”
"So many contemporary bluegrass and folk outfits that get big have a cloying sweetness to them, or a cynical predisposition towards a radio-friendly pop sensibility. Not so with Honeysuckle. Their sound is unpretentious and unabashed, as if each song is meant for one set of ears only. They don't shy away from moments that are as technical as they are mesmerizing, and here their musicianship really shines through. Trampled By Turtles is about to be stomped by a flower y'all.” -NPR All Songs Considered
Opening for Honeysuckle will be Jason Schnitt, a prolific, multi-faceted songwriter who floors his audiences with subtle, startling, and often stark phrasing, alternately mixing straightforward honesty with abstract imagery and complex interpretations. Part poet, part folk singer, part indie-rocker, and part mad-scientist, Jason is fearless, inventive, and one of the most uniquely creative singer/songwriters in the independent music world today. Please beware, current protest songs may bust loose in this set.
