Never Let Me Cross Your Mind

"spellbinding cascades of fingerpicking wizardry and wickedly emotive fiddle playing."

 

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.

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, and a second unreleased original will be included in the 2016 film "The Dinner," by the same writer/director.  Locust Honey's record "Never Let Me Cross Your Mind" debuted to critical acclaim in 2014 and remained in the top ten on the Folk DJ Charts for 4 months.  Subsequently released in The UK and Ireland, it was chosen as one of the best country albums of 2016 by The Telegraph in London.

Never Let Me Cross Your Mind

by Locust Honey

What folks are saying.

 

"Their new album is in heavy rotation here in the Hudson Valley farm house, fitting in right along with all those killer 78's from Yazoo.  Grab yourself a copy and put on your dancing shoes." - No Depression

 

"Their intuitive playing takes the feel of a song, maintains it, and at the same time turns it into a Locust Honey song.  The results are warm, emotional, and, at times, heartbreaking." - Pop Matters

 

"These feisty women are a relief from the most successful of contemporary bluegrass groups, who too often let both their production and their performance get in the way of their repertoire." - Songlines

 

"Old-Time String Band traditional fiddle/banjo tunes to vintage country duets, Carter Family songs to dancehall honky tonk songs and mountain blues, this smashing album has them all." - The Irish Post

 

"If you like your country on the Appalachian side, you will love this album." - Country Music People

 

"Instrumentally, the expertise and passion of delivery and their instrument-swapping versatility is obvious, but when Chloe and Meredith harmonize, the performance takes on an additional melodic polish."  - Live Review, Blues and More Again

 

"This is American Roots Music at its best."   The Irish Post

 

"Vibrant, entrancing, and ultimately compulsive, listen and you're hooked."  Folkwords

 

"An arresting earthiness and energy pulses through this 14 track debut of old-time Americana."  The Irish Times
