Onion Honey makes folk music, sharp and sweet with banjo and mandolin, washboard and double bass, guitar and warm five-part harmonies. It is a recipe for a great time and good for what ails, home-cooked comfort food for the ears.
Dave Pike and Esther Wheaton (the two core members of the usual quintet) play new-time traditional and old-time originals and all-time favourites: mountain music filtered through the Grand River Valley. They have performed in swanky saloons and sunny cafés, folk festivals and country weddings, small-town castles and downtown galleries, fancy hat shops and antique train cars – and once for an audience of several thousand bees. Their music can be heard online via most streaming services and at www.onionhoney.com.
