    October 18, 2019, 7:30 PM @ Manhattan Arts Center

    The Honey Dewdrops - Laura Wortman and Kagey Parrish - have long felt the push-and-pull between their original roots in the Appalachian mountains and their current home in urban Baltimore. You'll hear it in their harmony soaked songs and the mastery of their instruments' acoustic tones, but also in their songwriting, which reflects the hard realities of today. Their songs sparkle with intensity and warmth.
    The Honey Dewdrops prove that the magic of their artistry is in their ability to impart a sense of compassion in listeners while delivering meaningful messages with a purity that's so rare to encounter. - Cella Houghton, No Depression

    Over its 70-year history, the field of kinesiology has been remarkably successful in producing compelling evidence on the benefits of physical activity and exercise on many facets of health and well-being. At the same time, however, it is equally remarkable that there have been no "success stories" in global efforts to encourage more individuals to be physically active.
