Honeysuckle is a progressive folk act that blends older influences and traditional instrumentation with modern effects and inspiration.
Comprised of Holly McGarry and Chris Bloniarz, this Boston based band can frequently be found performing across the country. Honeysuckle has performed an Audiotree session and at Newport Folk Festival, Lollapalooza, Mountain Jam and Americanafest, was chosen as a Converse Rubber Tracks artist, and has been nominated for Best Folk Artist of the Year, and Best Americana Artist of the Year four years in a row at the annual Boston Music Awards. In 2018 they won Best Folk Artist of the Year at the Boston Music Awards. They were also put in the Top 10 bands of 2016 So Far list compiled by NPR.
Honeysuckle just released their third full-length album "Fire Starter" on Antifragile Music. They also have three previous titles: "Catacombs" (full length 2017), "Honeysuckle" (full length 2016) and "Arrows" (EP 2015).
Ben Cosgrove is a traveling composer-performer whose music explores themes of landscape, place, and environment in North America. Ben has performed his "electric and exhilarating" instrumental music in every U.S. state except Delaware and Hawaii, and held artist residencies and fellowships with institutions including the National Park Service, the National Forest Service, Harvard University, Middlebury College, the Schmidt Ocean Institute, and the Sitka Center for Art & Ecology. His recent album "Salt," which compares feelings of ungroundedness and confusion to landscapes of flux and ambiguity, was described by Seven Days as a "majestic entry into the composer's catalog... replete with near-imperceptible embellishments and forward-thinking concepts." Junction Magazine called the album "a poetry of tones and turns and motion and play that transcends the gross signification of everyday language," and both Sound of Boston and Red Line Roots deemed it one of the best local releases of the year. In addition to his solo work, Ben is known for his collaborations with other artists including Max Garcia Conover, Palaver Strings, the Maine Youth Rock Orchestra, and the Ghost of Paul Revere.
