PFS presents Honey Whiskey
November 16, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm$21
We happily welcome the Honey Whiskey Trio to our November concert stage. This is their second appearance for PFS and their first featured performance in Portland. They are the ONLY group in recent PFS concert history to get an encore and a standing ovation after performing an opening set.
“Three sisters went to play and dance through golden rays of sunshine…”
The Los Angeles-based Honey Whiskey Trio tells stories through song and stomp, highlighting the musical traditions of American Folk Music.
Alumni of the Bob Cole Conservatory of Music at California State University, Long Beach, Courtney, Ann Louise & Christina began singing together in each other’s living rooms as an emotional and musical release. In 2013, after seeing the impact of their music on the contemporary A cappella community, these sisters in song solidified their style as American Folk and picked up instruments to further enhance their vocally driven sound.
Today their passion for music education, community outreach, and singing continues to drive them. They create, arrange, and explore music from the front porches, music halls, and hymn books of early America, sharing it with students, adults, and life-long music lovers across the United States.
“Their sound is intoxicating… To simply classify this trio as folk, bluegrass, or jazz would be to do them a great disservice. What I hear is great music and what I see is great joy.” – Bluegrass Spin
“They always leave you sitting at the edge of your seat, waiting with bated breath for each new beautifully executed phrase. The women of HWT are also gifted educators, captivating their pupils with humor, grace and honesty, a unique and valuable combo.” – Lisa Forkish, Founder & Executive Director of the Women’s A Cappella Association
