From the rolling hills of the Bluegrass and the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, Montana Hobbs and Linda Jean Stokley are two exceptionally talented young women who brought the Folk music of Kentucky to UK shores for a string of UK festivals, including Kate Rusby’s Underneath The Stars, Latitude and SummerTyne. Having been the first women to graduate their state university’s degree programme in traditional ‘Hillbilly’ music, The Local Honeys have gone on to win numerous songwriting accolades, including the prestigious Chris Austin Songwriting Award at MerleFest - also awarded to Gillian Welch at the beginning of her career. 

"A departure from the secular and partly self-penned material on their debut, but remaining firmly rooted in their love of traditional Kentuckian bluegrass, there is an irresistible and infectious joy in what they do, so amen to that" (Folk Radio UK)

Tennessee's Mike Farris is a one-of-a-kind talent, mixing gospel, rock, soul and blues - a talent that was rewarded with a Grammy for 2014’s Shine For All The People, followed by 2018’s equally revered Silver and Stone.
