Before their concert at the Blue Moon Diner on Monday, March 25, Locust Honey String Band will stop by Back Up and Push for a visit.

Locust Honey started in 2011 when a group of friends got together for a fourth of July gig. Then overtime the pick-up band morphed into a group that enjoys to share their music including the music of generations of traditional musicians and their own original creations. Chloe, Ariel, and Meredith blend sweet harmonies with raging Old Time fiddle tunes to take "girl band" to a different level. Using various combinations of fiddle, banjo, guitar, and bass, Chloe, Ariel, and Meredith each contribute a different style to create music meant for dancing and listening.

Chloe and Ariel grew up going to old-time music festivals with their parents and have been playing music together since their early teenage years. Meredith has been playing blues guitar and singing blues and beautiful harmonies since her college years at NYU; while collecting experiences from busking on the streets of everywhere from New York City to New Orleans. The three women combine their interests and experiences to generate a collective sound of blues, old-time tunes, honky-tonk, and old country music.
