If you like harmony, you’ll love HoneyGrass!
That is the motto of one of the hottest new acts to come out of Ontario in recent years. HoneyGrass at once have a respect for tradition and a willingness to explore new areas of contemporary bluegrass. Their highly energetic and entertaining shows strike a balance between originals, traditional and contemporary bluegrass, old country, rock, and bluesy numbers. They resist being pegged into any specific area of the genre, preferring to forge their own identity.
HoneyGrass originated in the summer of 2005 when two of the founding members met at the River Valley Bluegrass Festival in beautiful Northern Ontario. They have since forged their musical identity in an ever expanding circle of concerts, events, and festivals. They showcased at the 2007 International Bluegrass Music Association’s “World of Bluegrass” conference in Nashville, and won the "Most Promising Band" award at the 2007 Central Canadian Bluegrass Awards (CCBA). They have received a total of nine CCBA nominations in the past four years. Their debut CD "She's Running Wild" was released in June 2008 and received a very favourable review in the December 2008 issue of Bluegrass Unlimited. HoneyGrass has also contributed original work to the award winning "North to Ontario" compilation CDs in each of the past three years, which receive extensive international airplay. They have been playing at major festivals in Ontario and are currently booking for 2013.
