Locust Honey String Band
This band from Swannanoa, N. C., was formed in 2011 and after gaining popularity in the Asheville area, has branched out to appear in other states east of the Mississippi River. The group is composed of Chloe Edmonstone, fiddle/guitar/vocals; Ariel Dixon, banjo/guitar/vocals; and Meredith Watson, guitar/vocals, and for Bear on the Square, they will be joined by bass player Andy Edmonstone.
Chloe, Ariel and Meredith blend sweet harmonies with raging old-time fiddle tunes to take "girl band" to a different level. Using various combinations of fiddle, banjo, guitar, and bass, they each contribute a different style to create music meant for dancing and listening.
Chloe and Ariel grew up going to old-time music festivals with their parents and have been playing music together since their early teenage years. Meredith has been playing blues guitar and singing blues and beautiful harmonies since her college years at NYU; while collecting experiences from busking on the streets of everywhere from New York City to New Orleans. The three women combine their interests and experiences to generate a collective sound of blues, old-time tunes, honky tonk, and old country music. Locust Honey's recently-released CD is entitled "He Ain't No Good".
